In addition to Apple Retail Stores, Apple has announced that their new iPad will also be available at a variety of other retailers on Friday morning, including Best Buy, Radio Shack, Sam’s Club, Target, and Walmart in the U.S.
While opening times will be up to the specific retailers, many stores will likely be opening up at 8 AM just like Apple (Best Buy has a history of doing this). Your best chance to snag a new iPad, however, will be to line up at an Apple Store, as stock will be much more limited at other stores.
Good luck to all of you who will be standing in line Friday morning! Check out our Apple Launch Survival Guide for tips on making the most of it, and check out our new iPad buyer’s guide for tips on which model you should buy!
