The wait is over everyone! It’s been quite the tumultuous ride trying to uncover iPad news for Canadians. At first, our breaking news report of an April 24th launch in Canada was blown away when Apple delayed the iPad release for International customers till late May. Our neighbours down south welcomed the iPad with open arms on April 3rd.
Finally, news came that Canadians would be able to pre-order iPads on May 10th with the final release date slated for May 28th–which is where we are today. iPadinCanada.ca readers have united to share their iPad pre-order FedEx tracking info–even down to the kilometre. Your package should arrive today–I hope you’re going to be home to receive it!
Where to Buy the iPad in Canada?
If you didn’t get a chance to pre-order your iPad, you might have to do some searching to acquire one today. Where to start your search? Here’s a list of confirmed stores that will sell the iPad according to an article by Vancouver Sun Tech reporter Gillian Shaw (I have a tiny cameo appearance in the article):
- Apple Stores (if you’re in line–email us pics and we’ll post them here)
- Future Shop & Best Buy (they will be handing out tickets for people in line)
- London Drugs (confirmed on twitter)
- Your local Apple Reseller (you might want to give them a call).
Your best bet is to call around and take advantage of social networking sites like Twitter for real-time updates.
