Last year, Apple Canada started iPad 2 sales at 5pm in the early evening, and online pre-orders started at 1AM in the morning. Canada was also part of the second wave of countries to get the iPad 2. This time around for the new iPad, we were included as part of the initial launch on Friday, March 16th.
9to5Mac posts an image of a poster received that clearly states the new iPad will hit Apple retail stores at 8AM. Not sure if this also applies to Canada, but considering we are part of the initial wave, I would say the poster at this point looks pretty good.
Last year, Apple posted a press release three days before the Canadian release date noting official launch times for the iPad 2. If history repeats itself, expect a press release from Apple to hit the wire first thing tomorrow morning with details about the launch time. We’ve contacted Apple PR and will update this post should we hear back from them.
