iPad 2 Launches In Canada; 2-3 Weeks Shipping Online

by on March 25th, 2011

Today marks the official launch day of the iPad 2 in Canada! WooHoo!!! Online sales are LIVE and retail sales will begin later this evening at 5PM local time.

Many Canadians started lining up yesterday afternoon and evening, with many more lining up early this morning. No matter where you go, it’s going to be crazy!

Apple.ca has iPad 2 ship times as “2-3 weeks”. So it looks like there is an International delay for iPad 2. But, Apple always overestimates these times so I would really put them at 1-2 weeks.

In the spirit of launch day, post your iPad 2 launch day experiences below! As a guide, we want to hear about the following:

1.) Your launch day experience!
2.) Which iPad did you buy? And why?
3.) What accessories and cases/colors did you buy?

Enjoy your iPad 2 everyone!

    Epic fail iPadinCanada… On one of the biggest events related to this blog you incorrectly announce that online Sales are LIVE. You lost all credibility with me. Best stick with posting generic Apple news scraped from other sources.

  • TB

    Was able to order at 12:45 PDT,(3:45 EST). I’m really dissapointed they don’t have any online stock in canada available on the release day, They started off with a long back order of 2-3 weeks with 8-12 business day shipping. Sounds like they will be shipped from the u.s or their factory when they get more stock in around a month. Very dissapointing.

  • RL

    wow, relax. It takes more than a split second to update the page for thousands of people logging on at once.

    I was on the education website and they released it at 12:58am :D was I first? I’d like to think so =D

  • bill

    got mine pad wifi 32 GB

  • RL

    top tip: check the education store first, cuz it was released about 5 min earlier than 1am!

    bought a black 16GB wifi ipad. Decided at the end that I had the iphone4 to hotspot to. I really debated between 16 and 32 but decided that my phone is only 2/3 filled with all the software and songs that I have. And if the rumors of the iTunes locker are ever true…

    64 GB Wi-Fi only. I have an iPhone 4 w/ 6GB a month data plan. With the personal hotspot, there’s no way I’m paying Rogers illogical amounts just to share my data. As for accessories, the smart cover might be smart but it’s stupid if what you want is a case. I’m waiting for my local Apple Store/Best Buy/Future Shop to have a good one in stock.

    i had the same issue. worried i was the only one. was refreshing from 3:59 until 4:06 and used us store url to get the select button. i have an April 15 delivery April 22 as well.

    Was it ever 24 hours or less than 2-3 weeks?

  • TB

    Ordered.. 32GB Black with Black leather cover. I decided to get a “Property of …” engraving on my iPad, but reading the fine print after the purchase it sounds like it can’t be returned for any reason if it’s engraved. Now I’m wondering if I made a mistake.

  • VCapplefan

    Just Finished online yeah!!!!!!!!!! Bought a 32gb wifi-3g Black!!!!!!! 2-3 weeks…..that part sux!
    Well im off to line up tom and hopefully get one. Congrats to all and good luck to those who line up tom!

  • Rafarosen

    black 16gb wifi – grey smart cover…Apr 22 :(

  • Gunfus

    64 GB , 3G, Camera Kit, Green cover. No engraving, for now just to make sure I can return it without problems.

    Debated on the 3G a lot, in my head since I also have a iPhone 4, but at the end decided for it, since it will be for both my wife and I and she doesn’t have anything. hmm I am still thinking whether I need teh 3G or not..darn it!

    change it before it’s too late!

  • Gunfus

    I was doing the same thing.. but then got concerned about that.. so went back and got one without engraving…but during the process my cart got all messed up. I had a bit of a delay because of that.. grrr..

  • allyc

    I got my order in and my confirmation email back. I can wait… I never bought the first iPad, so if I’ve waited this long, I can wait another 2 – 3 – 4 weeks. Although I hope you’re right about the overestimation of wait times! That would be more than awesome!

    whats EPP?

  • Mac4everQc

    Education Purchase Program? Didn’t see any rebate… How did you save $12?

  • http://twitter.com/snowy2004 Stéphane Lachance

    That’s on top of the 2-3 weeks before shipping (8-12 days is for the basic shipping alone).

  • Asakura58

    picked up a 16gb white wifi ship date is April 15th with blue smart case. waited this long another couple of weeks wont hurt…

  • Asakura58

    it is Employee Purchase Plan (EPP) :)

  • Natq7

    Got the white 64 gb wi-fi with the green cover, engraved and the digital Av adapter. Expected to ship on Apr 15, to be delivered on Apr 22 – it’s Easter Friday, isn’t it a holiday?

    I’ll check out the Apple store at the Rideau Centre in Ottawa at around 1:00 pm, if I think there is a chance that I’ll get one, I’ll lineup ’til Ipad 2 launch time.

    I already own the black 16 gb wifi Ipad 1, will give it to My Mom, she loves it…

  • dd28

    Ordered online through education store at 3:42 AM Toronto time – shipping= 2-3 weeks (April 15)
    White 16gb wifi with black leather cover.

  • Daphoid

    I decided to forgo the lines and order it online. I’ve waited for the Wii, and Starcraft II, both with friends and that’s something to be experienced once. Waiting for a day, or 8 hours, by myself, is not enjoyable. Besides I got to engrave it this way as well since my lady is helping pay for (bought her a Kindle DX in January so she’s treating me :) ).

    I ordered:
    - iPad 2 64GB in Black (Wifi+3G, went with Rogers)
    - iPad 2 Dock
    - iPad Camera Connector Kit
    - IPad HDMI kit
    - iPad VGA Kit
    - iPad 10 Watt Power Adapter Kit (a spare is always nice)
    - Applecare (forgot about this until this morning, but figured what the heck)

    I’ve got a pretty case on pre-order from http://www.grovemade.com so I passed on the smart cover. Especially since mine also has smart cover-esque features and because they added $10 to the price, for about $50 with tax in Ontario – for the smartcover that’s crazy!

    I’m really hoping it comes by the 8th of April, I’m going out of town on the 9th. It’s not a deal breaker if it doesn’t come, but I really would like it to :)

  • Daphoid

    Hey, at least it’s better then the 4-5 weeks Apple.com’s store has been saying for the iPad 2 :)

  • http://twitter.com/Eric_Nolet Eric Nolet

    The French page was definitely up before 4:00 AM (EDT). I got my order through @ 3:35 (EDT). Took a good 10m for the Email to show up in my Inbox though! :)

  • TinCatCanuck

    Easy for me. I woke up at 5am, ordered it online and just have to wait. Not bad. I also ordered the iKit Carbon case for it. It comes with an anti-glare screen protector, so I’ll see how that works. Otherwise I’ll buy the anti-glare protector from Power Support or SGP.

  • rox

    As some others, I was able to place my order a bit before 3:45am EST.

    64Gb black Wi-Fi
    dock
    smart cover (orange)
    HDMI conn

    planning to cancel once I get one today.

    bought mine at 4:12AM EST. I was constantly hitting the refresh button and it only showed up in stock at around 4:10AM EST.

    no, dont bother with 3G. I have 32G 3G version and have iPhone 4. Personal Hotspot feature is awesome!

  • kiwi

    7am EST and same shipping time – nice to sleep in ;)

  • Gunfus

    What is the shipping day from the epp.?

  • Anonymous

    1.) Pretty comfortable in my bed! lol
    2.) White iPad 2 – 16GB (Wi-Fi + 3G), because i already have an iPhone 4 32gb, so i dont need the extra storage of a 32 or 64gb… And since the data is from month-to-month, I like to be free…
    3.) I didn’t buy any cases yet, because apparently the smart cover leaves oil and dirt on the ipad screen… and its 45$+tax!! I’ll just stick with a ZAGG full protection for 30$ max…
    Have a great day everyone! My iPad 2 is suppose to ship on april 20…

  • Anonymous

    Lining up for first day sales? Really? Just wait a week and walk in a buy one. You’ve waited this long.

  • Guest

    For the price diff its worth the flexibility. I like to travel, so when in the US I can easily pick up a SIM and have connectivity while on vacation walking the streets or wherever.

  • me

    I ordered the Black 16GB Wifi only. I have an iPhone 4 16GB and I barely fill that one out even with videos. I ordered the Zaggmate Keyboard, Portenzo Case, Bodyguardz Skin and Slip Case from Waterfield Designs and they all yet to arrive in the mail. I’m also going to get in line this morning at a London Drugs store. If I get one today, I will cancel my online order. Cheers!

  • Rafarosen

    If you can buy an iPad 2 in a few days, can you cancel your order online with no problems?

  • http://twitter.com/rmajoran Ray Majoran

    Bought 4 of them at 4:11am… Had the same issue as thevarmanator (with stock not coming online till 4:10). Bought 2 under my account (64GB wifi) and 2 under my wife’s account (16GB wifi). Sold our other 4 iPad v1s… Looking forward to the new ones! Also love the fact that iOS 4.3 on the iPhone gives you a personal hotspot, so there’s absolutely no use in going iPad2 3G if you have an iPhone.

  • http://twitter.com/jenochej Jen Ochej

    No… That would be 3 weeks exactly.

  • Jimmoss

    Planning on getting a 32 Bit 3g Model with a Blue Cover – a wife Keyboard and I am doing it online with a whack of Gift Cards that I have been collecting on penny auction sites – all told it will cost me about $125.00!!!

    I placed on line at 2am (damn alarm didn’t go off) 64GB 3G in white with a red cover. I am also heading to best buy today and will see if I can pick one up today. If I can, I’ll cancel my online order

  • Matt

    Ordered online. Like everyone else, the site didn’t come online until about 10 minutes past the hour. I got the black 32GB + 3G with engraving (“Property of…”), red leather case, and HDMI adapter. I figure I’ll stop by BestBuy and/or FutureShop this weekend and I’m able to get the same thing in-store, I’ll just cancel my online order. After tax (QC) the order comes to a few dollars shy of a grand! Good thing I saved some of my bonus this year!

  • Thinker

    Ordered Ipad last night wait time is up to 3-4 weeks this morning. I guess it was worth setting the alarm and getting out of bed in the middle of the night…….I didn’t want one bad enough to stand in a line all day.

  • Gunfus

    But you then need to pay for tethering, don’t you?

  • Rehan0202

    Only if freaking Rogers/Bell & Telus allow us to do so. All I am getting is contact you service provider. which sux big time as I already purchsed the wifi ipad 2 from USA on it’s launch. Not sure how to get the hotspot use on my iphone4

  • IPad

    Ordered Black 32Gigs Wifi iPad 2 and Red Leather Smart Cover (separate orders, did not want iPad 2 to be delayed because of Smart Cover!).

    I was able to order at about 3h50 a.m. (Eastern), on the EPP website it seems like it was a little bit earlier, and it was $607 instead of $619.

  • PJ

    Ordered mine this morning at 7:25 AM. Estimated arrival is 04/22. Good enough for me. Might try Fairview or the Eaton Centre 1st thing tomorrow morning.

  • apple_prod_newb

    order page (with icons) kicked in about 8-10 minutes after 1am PST. The delay surprised me a bit. Order completed 1:16am PST. Projected shipping and delivery same as everyone.

  • asdmd

    Woke up at 5 am before work, placed order for our first ipad 2, 16 gb wifi. As most have sated with iphone and 6 GB data, no way i’m going to pay any more to robbers :) Can’t wait! Just got find a work around for flash and im all set.

  • Mathieu Bouffard

    I ordered mine at 10:15 and the delay is 3-4 weeks, but based on my experience with Apple, it should be sooner.

    I bought the black 32 gb wifi engraved with my name (no use for 3g because of the ios hotspot…thanks Apple) with a grey leather smart cover.

    My impression for the line up? Very good! I still have just enough patience to wait a few weeks. My time is a scarse resource and i cannot afford to use it “in waiting” However, I wish the best of luck to those who are in line!!

    I called them this morning. They had to cancel and reorder which put my shipping date forward another week. :(

    Ships: 15 Apr

    I hear that 1-click ordering was the only way to get expedited shipping

    Ordered my iPad 2 (Wi-Fi, black, 32 GB with a grey cover) online at 12:45AM PDT. I had the Apple Store open in my browser and kept refreshing it every so often, expecting sales to start at 1AM. They did start a bit earlier, however. My order was through Employee Purchase Plan, so yes I did save $12. This afternoon I will wander in to Best Buy and Future Shop (London Drugs and WalMart, too, for that matter) anticipating massive lineups. If I’m able to purchase an iPad 2 in-store, I can still cancel my online order.

  • sean

    got mine online, frustrated with that they didn’t deliver the order web page on time and seeing the shipping time 2-3 wks!!
    32G wifi ver. White
    already had grey smart cover, camera kits, wireless keyboards from US

  • VR

    If this was my blog, I wouldn’t have pushed a post live indicating the store was taking orders, before it actually was. It’s shoddy journalism and/or lazy to have just pushed the story live at 1AM without confirming if Apple was taking iPad orders in Canada or not. Anyway, I guess I’m alone in expecting accurate reporting on blogs.

    They’re actually sending that tiny thing tracked via UPS in a separate shipment.

  • AJForeverCadence

    Its free from bell. Go in to any mobility store and ask for you personal hotspot to be activated.
    Or jailbreak 4.2.1 and get it from Cydia’s server :)

  • Achmilar

    Everything is shipped separately if it is ready early, just sayin.

  • Dan

    exciting!

  • Alkie4ever

    Come on, I’ve already purchased mine online 10 hours ago! Estimate delivery date is April 22. According to my experience with iPhone 4, it may arrive a week early!

  • Tony

    Take a break man! You had apple.ca to check when the iPad started selling, it’s your main reference. Stop nagging on a useful blog and useful postings, by taking some non useful space in the comments! I shouldn’t even add myself to replies on your post, but I had to.

    No, I believe if you have more than 6GB data plan, you do not have to pay for tethering. Not with Fido/Rogers, at least.

    Woke up at 3:55am eastern time but the option to order wasn’t available until 4:15! got a 16GB WiFi iPad with a black leather smart cover. 2-3 weeks delivery time, hopefully will come within 1-2 weeks.

  • Chamcent

    That’s quick! Did your order confirmation say “Leaves Apple: Apr 15 and Receive: Apr 22″?

  • asdmd

    when did you order, i just checked my status and its the same, and i bought it right away?

  • Raids

    Check your order that shipped. I received shipping confirmation and it’s only the Rogers sim card. I’m still lining up at pacific centre today. How can I cancel my order if the sim is already shipped if I get my iPad here?

  • Shawn

    “Epic fail”? How very 2009 of you…

  • Chinook2000

    Yes. Leaves Apple Apr 15, and receive Apr 22.

    Rats! Looked closer at email. The shipping notification is only for the Rogers SIM for iPad. Bizarre!

    My Sim card has shipped as well (and my credit card charged $0.22), but I just checked, I can still cancel the ipad and cover if I want.

  • Anonymous

    Ordered mine online this morning to make sure I get one if I can’t find one locally. Somewhat excited to get one… which is to say a marked reversal of what I thought of the iPad last year at this time. :)

  • Anonymous

    If demand and supply has been anything like it’s been in the US… good luck with that. :)

  • iris

    FYI if you are still looking for an ipad, i believe there is still some tickets left at BB Laird.

  • Trendspotter77

    Yeah that’s SO not going to happen. It’s nowhere to be found anywhere in the US, and they launched 2 weeks ago.

  • Jnouimet

    First person is already out. Yeah.

  • IPad fan

    I don’t think you an cancel an order with engraving. I was going to do engraving and it said that the sale was final (or so I think – it was very early in the EST time zone when I was placing the order)

  • iPad fan

    I think so if no engraving. Log into your account using the confirmation email and go to order status. At the top right I think there is a cancel items link. I didn’t click on it so there may be restrictions. Use your iPhone to cancel your order while standing in line to pay for your other iPad. :)

  • iPad fan

    Anyone to the north of Toronto at the other retailers (Best Buy, Future Shop, etc) and know what the lineups are like. Any sense of whether they have enough stock?

  • Oates

    Ordered online then happened to be passing a futureshop in the ghetto (toronto) and said hmm…let me try. Reached at 4:42pm was about 50 people in line got a 32gb 3G even though I was given a ticket for a 32gb wifi (they messed up- will have to swap for me later – yes I was the only one this happened to!) will cancel online order – people who lines up all night are dumb pick a less busy location and go at 4pm I got one lining up at 4:42pm and 5 others behind me did too! So even 4:45 would have worked! But go ahead and have fun at eatons!

  • Tvshogal

    online sales went live at 0405 this morning. That’s what time I ordered my iPad2.

  • Tvshogal

    Just called Apple Store at Yorkdale Mall… iPad2 16 SOLD OUT. as is the 16 with 3G – sold out in less than 2 hours… and it looks like the rest of the stock will be gone by the time the store closes. Manager has no idea when more will arrive. iPad went onsale at 5:00ET, sis texted me at 5;49 that she had just bought hers. Line up had over 500 ppl early this morning. She had to have been there very early. I was up at 0330 and ordered mine online at 0405. Anyway.. I got what I wanted – even I have to wait until April 22 to receive it.

  • Vazandrew

    Wow, I actually got my hands on one! I just happened to walk into Walmart after work, I was the 4th in line, and that’s all they had. A few minutes later and I would have been out of luck. I have only had it for a couple hours but it is an amazing piece of technology and boy is it ever thin!

  • Ravi Sidhu77

    Futureshop, in Pointe-Claire Quebec. Showed up at 3:30 wa s 12th in line and had my wifi iPad by 5:20.

    Wifi because I’ll use my iPhone hotspot to tether.

  • Tvshogal

    u can’t cancel any online order once you order it.. you can only wait until it arrives then return it for a refund. – -but you can’t return anything that’s been engraved.

  • Jay

    now says 3-4 weeks

  • Vazandrew

    That’s completely false. You are able to cancel any order as long as it has not yet shipped. Once it has been prepared then you must wait and return. I cancelled mine with a few clicks and got a confirmation email.

  • Exploratrix

    Bought on-line at 1:14 a.m. 64 GB wi-fi, black, with red smart cover, engraved, and received confirmation email. NOW I have just received ANOTHER confirmation email, for the same items, different order number, timed for 1:46 p.m. YIKES!!!!!!! Cancel, cancel that second order FAST!!! I wonder how that happened???? (Because I keep going in to look at delivery times, I wonder?)

  • Tvshogal

    I stand corrected. you can cancel online order if it hasn’t shipped .. but you can’t return any product with engraving. My sister told me if I had only told her that my dad had offered to buy me an iPad2 she’d have gotten it for me at Yorkdale when she bought hers. Oh well. I m happy waiting for it to be delivered. Besides… I suspect it will ship sooner than what they have indicated. Better to say it take longer and deliver it sooner than the opposite.

  • Exploratrix

    I was just able to cancel the duplicate order (engraved) I made on-line. If you click on the order number on your confirmation email, you can review your order, and there is a cancellation option. And I got a confirmastion of the cancellation.

  • Tvshogal

    yeah.. feel the same way Im up at 0500 normally so getting up an hour early was no big deal…best part .. I m not paying for it… it was a gift from my dad…..ordered iPad 16GB black with pink Smart Cover…. ships on April 15, arriving April 22…but I m betting it ships sooner.

  • Ernie Gorrie

    I showed up at London Drugs in Duncan BC at 4:45. They said they had 10 iPads at 32 and 64, all Wifi. I had my 64 by 5:01. They still had some left five minutes ago when I left the store.

    I picked up the camera adaptor too. I understand I can put video onto an SD card and play it from there. This will be great for taking lots of movies on long vacations.

    I won’t have any stories of standing in line for 24 hours. But in just a few minutes I’ll be using my iPad out on the deck looking at the Pacific Ocean.

    There’s something to be said for small town life. :)

  • http://twitter.com/RyanLaker Ryan Laker

    I ordered one this morning just after 1AM. I hit up some stores in Victoria, BC just to see if I could get one sooner. Pretty disappointing quantities around here. Nearest Best Buy didn’t even get one of each model (The Langford store), The Millstream Futureshop had about 25-30 from what I could tell and the London Drugs in Colwood got 5 total. Looks like I am waiting 2-3 weeks with the other online orders.

  • name

    Arrived at the Ottawa Apple store and got in line at 5:10pm. Was in the store by 6:10pm Walked out 5 mins later. 32GB 3G Black, black leather smart cover.

  • Antec

    Well.. went to Bestbuy in Ottawa at 6:10pm,,, approx 40 – 50 ppl in line.. got a 16gb WIFI then 10 mins later my wife joined the line and got a 16gb black…

  • http://twitter.com/frankholdem Francois Harbec

    So by the time 5pm rolled around there were almost 40 people waiting for the iPad2 at Future Shop in Vernon, BC. And amazingly everyone of us was able to get an iPad. There is definitely an advantage to being in a small town sometimes.

  • Bros88888

    Any info on stock for weekend at Fshop pointe Claire?

  • Bros88888

    Anybody have any info on Futureshop stock for this weekend? Pointe Claire, Montreal? Or Canada?

    conquer for the 6GB data plan with Rogers, so far its free for me. dunno if with a small data plan it would be also.

    my shitty launch day: woke up at 3:30AM. watched some big bang theory. Kept hitting CMD+R and eventually I bought my green Smart Cover with a 32GB White iPad 2 WiFi+3G!

  • Sean

    Went to Brantford future shop from Mississauga. They still have some left but No 32g wifi model available
    Bought 2 white 16GB Wifi only models. And canceled my online order :)

  • riptide

    Well even though I ordered IPad 2 online, I thought I would check out the local stores, Simply in Victoria at 4:30 and only 6 people in line… but it turned out this was because they only had 6 Ipads to sell, then went to best buy who were sold out fairly quickly, my wife was at London drugs and they were also sold out seemed they had maybe 10 to sell. Not sure what they had at Futureshop but it sure seems Victoria stores received very few IPads to sell.

  • Morgan

    You can’t actually. Just tried. It throws an error saying “You have chosen a product that cannot be cancelled without canceling the other products that have now been selected for you.”

  • Tony

    Free with Fido as well, I’ve been using the Personal Hotspot without any problem.

  • http://twitter.com/RyanLaker Ryan Laker

    I think there was less than 40 units total between BestBuy, Futureshop & London Drugs in the WestShore

  • Bangloboy

    What’s actually disgusting is the craiglist prices today! I hate this bull! I got my white 32gb wifi in Ontario for a tad bit over $700 yet asking on CG is $850-$950

    The futureshop I got mine off says they might restock on Tuesday march 29 – I got mine at Richmond hill Ontario location and I got there at 425pm – big line but I was lucky! Guys don’t get desperate – either order online or keep calling ur local futureshop, best buy or walmart and apple store! Happy hunting for the rest who still need one…

  • hc

    was 1st in line @ futureshop in pointe claire, Qc @ 3pm, really surprising, by 5pm, there were about 30ish ppl, i was out of the store by 5:09pm, really glad, coz i checked the apple store faireview mall, line up was too big by 2:30pm, however they still had stock left at closing time so if someone is still looking.

  • MJ

    i just came from FS in Coquitlam and they had 64GB 3G models left at 8:45pm.. If you are for this model, go for it!

  • hc

    ordered one online this morning, but after picking on up at futurshop, cancelled my order.
    white 64Gig, 3G, baige cover, extended warrenty at futurshop.

  • John In Ottawa

    I thought that I would drop a short note to say that I got my 64 ipad at the Apple Rideau Center tonight. Two very big thumbs up to the staff at the Apple store. They were organized, cheerful and super helpful.

    Also when I left the store after 830PM they still had stock – so you might want to check it on Saturday morning.

  • Hyrules

    Ottawa Apple Store still has some iPad 2 @ 11h00 AM. I just got my iPad 2 32 GB 3G i’m cancelling my online order !!!!

  • Cashinstinct

    Apple Store Carrefour Laval had 16 Gigs iPad left at 11h00 AM this Saturday morning, no lineups.

    They still had Smartcovers, but no Red ones left.

  • Jayo6969

    did anyone in the durham region see if they had lots of stock at any locations

  • Jayo6969

    anyone in the GTA know if the Apple stores have enough stock or are they turning people away?

  • Casey Callaghan

    My launch day experience was pretty exciting as I only had to wait for 1/2 hour without a preorder! I went to the Best Buy in South Surrey, BC and there was around 45-50 people ahead of me, so I though that there was a better chance of me getting my 32GB 3G black one that I preferred to get. However by the time I got my ticket, there was only 32GB Wifi, 64Gb Wifi and 64GB 3G in white. I needed to get a 3G one for travel so I got the 64Gb 3G in white! I checked my ticket afterwards and it said 10 of 10. It’s sad how for such a hyped launch that they only ordered 10 of one model. I saw someone else’s ticket (32Gb wifi black) and theirs said 5 out of 5. ONLY 5 OF ONE FUCKING MODEL?!?! This is very disappointing for something that should be available for everyone else to get the day after launch for the people that don’t want/can’t wait in line. Best buy should do better next time. I didn’t get any accessories with it at time of purchase but I am getting the smart cover across the border for the savings and maybe the Digital AV adapter or the dock, I’m not sure right now. I’m really happy that I got my iPad when I did because of the 2-3 week shipping wait right now. I think I’m the only one that goes to my high school that has one! Overall it was a great experience and I love my iPad 2!

  • Vazandrew

    The apple stores will always have the most stock. I don’t think that was Best Buy’s fault, it’s up to how much they are given I think. I went to Walmart and they only had 4-5 total and all wifi only.

  • Matthew Worts

    I’m at eaton centre right now and they’re still handing out tickets.

  • Jayo6969

    are they still only open unill 7 tonite or are they staying open later?

  • Dryden100

    Drove to Winnipeg Saturday morning arrived around 10am store opened at 9:30 apple store was on my way with 64 gb white 3G 30 min later.

  • Dryden100

    Cancelled my online order when I got home

  • Dryden100

    Just call apple and they will cancel thats what I had to do

    Just got shipping notice on my ipad 2. Bought at 4:06am on Friday. UPS tracking number says Thurs Mar 31!

  • Ben

    Can you confirm that this is not just a sim card? I know those were shipping out early. If not that’s awesome!

  • Cookie

    This morning got a shipping notice from Apple, my ipad 2 64GB Wifi only, was shipped out today (Mar 29th), will be rec’d by April 5th, so excited :)

  • Chatabhinav

    Hi, are you sure its shipping already? Is your iPad engraved?

  • Shoppingismything

    I ordered an iPad 2 Wifi+3G 64GB White at exactly 1:11 PDT, the very second it got online. The shipping thing was already 2 to 3 weeks, and I just received confirmation that my Smart Cover (Leather, Navy) shipped out and arrives April the 5th.

    YAY!

    i ordered mine on march 25th in canada. i just got an email today saying it shipped. i went to the fedex website to see its progress and the site said that it will ship this thursday. it left some city in china at 2:54amEST. do you think i will actually get it on thursday?

  • iPaddy O’Toole

    Mine left Shenzhen, China on April 10th at 10:15am EST and is supposed to be delivered today (April 13th) in Guelph by 6:00pm EST. The last FedEx update has it in Mississauga last night at 7pm so if the Guelph truck loads there this morning, hopefully I’ll have it today. If it has to come via a more local distribution centre it might be tomorrow. I’ll post when it arrives.

    Your iPad had a 7 hour head start on mine so certainly feasible it could arrive Thursday – hopefully Friday at the latest so you have it to play with on the weekend. Good luck!

  • Chatabhinav

    Hi Anishchop, your iPad would definitely be delivered by thursday, since i was promised delivery on 13th April by 12 PM and I just received mine. :)
