=========

Hey Rob,

Called the local Verizon store in Michigan and they have no iPads in the store. He said Apple release them so fast that they was unable to get them from the warehouse to the Verizon store in time for today. But he did say that you could call back after 5 and they would take your order and ship the iPad Monday. 

I ordered my iPad 2 from the apple website this morning and received a order acknowledge a few hours later. In the acknowledgment it claims to ship the iPad 2 in 3-5 business days with a estimated delivery of Mar 18-25! There is some good news, my smart cover has a delivery date of Mar 18-21 lol. I guess apple didn't want to leave me empty handed and hopes the smart cover will hold me over until my iPad 2 comes!

Just wanted to give u a status update from San Antonio, TX. Just showed up to BEST BUY @ the Forum about 4:00pm. Line isn't bad - about 17 people ahead of me laughing and joking with each other just trying to beat the heat. Best buy is handing out tickets @ 430 and product @ 500pm.

iPad2 Rumor Bingo Card

 

Word is coming out that in the UK carriers are dropping prices of the iPad - implying the iPad 2 is right around the corner.  Plus you know the iPad2 is right around the corner.  This means it is time for the iPad2 rumor bingo card.  There have been a lot of different rumors about the iPad2 - some going back to right after the iPad launched.  The Bingo card above shows many of these rumors.  Some will likely be spot on - most will miss the mark - others are just silly.  Per my thoughts on those above:

 

Likely:

Front Facing Camera

1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor

Gyroscope

Rear Facing 5 MP Camera

Larger Rear Speaker

Finger Print Resistant Display

Same 1024 x 768 IPS Display

Thinner Not as Reflective Display

Lighter Poly Carb Case

Verizon CDMA 3G Version

 

Maybe:

128 GB storage on Top End

Near Field Communication (NFC)

2nd Landscape Mode Dock Connector

1 GB RAM

$399 for Lowest end iPad

 

Long Shot:

2048 x 1536 "Retina Display"

512 MB RAM

 

No Chance:

No More WiFi only iPads

SD Card Slot

Rear Facing 3 MP Camera

Rear Facing 1 MP Camera

7" Version

USB Port

No Home Button
