With this morning’s announcement of the availability of the iPad in the US, Canadians will soon need to decide how exactly they wish to get their hands on an iPad when it releases here in April. The good news is, Apple has allowed pre-orders to be picked up in store for US customers, and this may be the same here in Canada.
This will allow for immediate pick up of your pre-ordered iPad the day it releases in Canada, hopefully avoiding the requirement to queue. However previously, it was rumored that Apple will give a special gift to people who camp out on launch day. So this raises the question, will there be a queue for pre-order pickups as well?
The alternative would be to just arrange shipment directly to your home. Apple’s courier service, FedEx, does allow for Saturday deliveries, however does guarantee that you will receive it on launch day – and may result in a delay of your product if you’re not part of the first batch of shipments.
Of course, for Canadians, the quickest alternative would be to head down to the states and hopefully pick one up at the store on April 3rd. Provided you can convince your travel companions to wait with you during your Easter holidays.
