Recent news points to Best Buy Canada launching the iPad 2 this Friday at 10AM, like last year, where Best Buy launched the original iPad to long lines and limited inventory.
The news comes from the comment section at Best Buy’s Canadian web site where a person identified as an employee confirmed that the retailer will be selling the iPad 2 Friday at 10AM.
Like with Apple, long lines are expected and there won’t be pre-orders; inventory will be handled on a first come, first served basis. Moreover, Best Buy may use a ticket system to organize orders.
Was confirmed by my store manager. We will be selling them at 10am Friday when we open. It’s first come first serve and there WILL be a line up. If we are doing the same thing as last year we will be handing out a piece of paper which you will fill out telling us which ipad you want, size, color ect..
At this time, it is unknown if this is legitimate or simply someone posing as an employee.
As with Apple, who is scheduled to launch at 8AM, Best Buy will likely restrict purchases to two iPads per customer.
