Well, it appears the Apple store is back online and accepting iPad pre-orders without delay.
There doesn’t seem to be any education discount, and accessories are also available for pre-order.
The big news is, orders are confirmed to be “delivered” by Saturday 3rd of April, and not “shipped” – allowing everyone to get their hands on it the first day.
For Canadian’s wishing to head down to the US to pick one up, they may wish to choose an In-Store pick up reservation. No US credit card or shipping address needed. Just head down to http://www.apple.com/retail and your iPad will be reserved for you. You will pay for the iPad in person when picking up.
I just received my confirmation email:
Pickup Date and Time
April 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Please note that your reservation will be held only until 3 p.m. on April 3. After 3 p.m., iPad will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
