    Do we assume it will be a store opening release at 10am or will they announce the late afternoon time like ipad 2. Any ideas? Jeremy???

    I am wondering the same thing too, I have tons of best buy giftcards to use and hopefully I can preorder this!

    I'm surprised that Verizon and AT&T didn't have it splattered all over their web sites right after the announcement. Who would have thought... It's about 8 hours later and still nothing. Maybe Apple is holding them back so that more people will order from them directly. I think I'll give Verizon a call and ask when they might be taking pre-orders... At least we have iOS 5.1 for our phones and such...

    I can guarantee that's the reason. Apple wouldn't want anyone else stealing their Pre-Order thunder, would they?

    That didn't seem to be an issue for the iPhone 4S launch... personally, more outlets means more buzz... but that's just my opinion.

    I'm hoping they did what they did with the iPad 2. That was so simple.

    I heard a rumor that Best Buy would start taking pre-orders this coming Sunday, which is tomorrow for the new iPad. Hopefully this pans out, as I don't see Best Buy just sitting back while RadioShack along with Apple continue to rack up the pre-orders.
