US Apple Stores To Close At 4PM Tomorrow For iPad 3G Launch

by on April 29th, 2010

Just a brief heads up.

For any Canadians that have pre-ordered an iPad 3G or that are planning to head to the USA to pick up an iPad 3G, be aware that the Apple Stores will be closed from 4PM – 5PM.

Each store is closing down for one hour to prepare for the launch of the iPad 3G. Even though many people picked up the iPad WiFi, there will likely be lines forming at Apple Stores. In other words, get there early.

At this time, there is no word if Best Buy stores will also close. In terms of inventory level however, Apple Stores will definitely be fully stocked where Best Buy stores may only have about 15 – 20 units for sale.

    Bought the 64gb 3G at the hillsdale apple store, was number 8 in line. I don't think I will activate the 3G, maybe wait until I return to Canada and look into the Rogers plan….

    I picked up a 64gb 3G one at the lynnwood store in washinton state yesterday. I showed up at 6:15pm and they still had roughly 100 ipads sitting there behind the counter and the lineups had already vanished.

    Anyway, I purchased a pre-paid mastercard so I could setup an AT&T account. That worked well and I was able to get the 3G service working in the US. Now that I'm back in canada it now says “TELUS” on the top bar where it had previously said AT&T while I was in the US.

    Data roaming?

    What will your data roaming charges be like in Canada? I can activate mine as I have a US visa but I don't want to get hammered on the charges…..May wait and investigate Rogers
