iPad 2 Sales to Start on March 11th at Midnight in US? Canada Too?

by on March 7th, 2011

Last year Americans were able to pre-order the iPad, and so were Canadians too. With iPad 2 arriving this Friday at 5pm in the US, and in Canada on March 25th, will we see the option to pre-order? The latest report from MacAppsDaily says sales will start for the US on March 11th just after midnight at 12:01am PST, via an online chat with an Apple rep.

Will Canada Get to Pre-Order iPad 2?

Last year, Canada was able to pre-order the iPad on May 10th, with a release on May 29th. Orders delayed by FedEx received $100 credit from Apple. Second round orders were pushed back to June. Will we see pre-orders again this year in Canada? Maybe, but there’s a good chance we won’t with the arrival date just around the corner.

Either Apple will allow pre-orders to be shipped or in-store pick up, or we won’t see any option at all. Last year’s pre-order helped build immense hype and publicity for Apple. For iPad 2, will Apple rely on store stocks and make people go hunting for an iPad in their city?

We’ll be sure to report back any findings we have closer to the March 25th launch date.

What are your plans for iPad 2? Wait in line? Drive to the US this Friday? We did confirm iPad 3G units will be unlocked in the US and Canada.
