After letting the flood gates open to online orders earlier today, the shipment dates for the Apple iPad 2 have jumped from their original 3 to 5 days, all the way to the staggering 2-3 shipment dates we’re presented with right now. Naturally, that’s definitely a heft toll to wait around to experience the latest iPad model, but then again, there are a host of stores today that are ready to possibly fill that void.
This time around, it 's quite evident that Apple is focusing on retail store sales as opposed to online orders – even more when Apple decided to forgo the customary pre-order process with this one.
So if you’re truly adamant in picking up an iPad 2 and just can’t wait around at least 2 to 3 weeks, then we’d suggest checking out some of the local vendors who will partake in all the festivities today – to guarantee yourself one for today of course.
