    Yeppers. So, they've already sold all they could produce and ship on the first day. Curious as to what that number happens to be.

    Apple is only now canceling some mistakenly large iPad pre-orders, MacNN can confirm from sources.

    So, you may have to hit up a Best Buy store on launch day. Looks like they're gearing up for it, but only in the stores that have an Apple section.

    Yup...looks like I'll be getting up around 8am to head to the Apple store. Hopefully I won't be let down. I just want the 32GB version, too bad they don't have the cases or camera connection kit available.

    I'm hoping due to the manufacturing not being able to keep up with the iPad, possibly they'll have some of the accessories available for in-store purchase.

    In another thread I mentioned that some folks might consider it to be a bit "shady, dodgy, sneaky, sketchy"...if someone (not 100% convinced that they REALLY wanted an iPad)..."reserved" one...got to the store, looked at it...and decided not to go thru with the purchase.

    My main point was...the iPad would most likely be in very very high demand initially. If only 1% (or fewer people) that "reserved" iPad's decided not to go thru with the purchase...this is a A LOT of iPad's that could have been shipped to other Stores....for folks that wanted to "reserve" them (starting today March 27th, 2010)...but now can't because Apple is no longer taking "pre-orders" or "reservations"...due to supply issues.

    For example...let's say 5 people "reserved" iPads at a Chicago Apple Store...and then didn't purchase them/take them home. Those same 5 iPads could have been shipped to a store in Atlanta...where five 100% positive buyers are located. Of course 5 LUCKY folks in Chicago will get those 5 "unclaimed" iPad's.

    But multiply nationally all of the reserved iPads that end up not being taken home by the folks who "reserved" them...and you have a lot of iPads that could have been shipped to different stores where there are folks that REALLY want them.

    So what I'm suggesting is...if someone is not 100% sure they want an iPad...they shouldn't have "reserved" it. Because due to initial supply & demand issues...some foks that really want one, won't get one.

    Of course everyone that wants one will get one eventually...they will just have to wait longer.

    No need to get up at 8, or 9 - or even noon for that matter. Just be at your apple store at 3:00 and I'm sure there will be lots and lots of Ipad's up for grabs.

    Well what if there is a line up for the 3pm reserved ipads that people never picked up? it'd pay to get there early to join in that queue.

    Good point for folks who did not pre-order or reserve. My guess is that they will have some sort of line for folks who reserved ---- and for walk in customers past 3:00. I spoke to the store that I plan to visit on the 3rd and was told they will honor any reserved id holder as long as they are there by the cut-off -3. I really just can't see how the lines could last from 9:AM through 3M for folks who have already reserved - but we will see.

    Glad I ordered right away.

    It would be interesting to know if the change in delivery dates is due to demand higher than expected or delays in manufacturing.

    Congrats to all who pre-ordered. Looks like it paid off. Some of us skeptics are eagerly awaiting your shakedown when they arrive to get some good feedback. Please post.
