    How many iMore users are going to WalMart at midnight to try to snag a new iPad. I think I will go to WalMart, buy one tonight and then stand in line at the Apple Store at 7 with the new iPad in hand. Anyone else going to WalMart?

    Your not going to get it at midnight. They will have a certain time that they are allowed to sell it.

    True. From what I've read, most places aren't going to start selling the New iPad till 9AM. I don't thing Walmart will be any different.

    ^ It will be interesting to see whether or not that is true. If it is, I just hope Walmart does a better job at handling the large crowds that are going to come than they do during Black Friday when some hot must have item comes out, lol.

    Normally, here in Orlando, stores hire police to maintain order at stores like Best Buy and certain Walmart stores when high profile products are launched. I assume it will be the same in a few hours when the new iPad becomes available to the public.

    Yeah but that won't stop a lot of people from going there, and you know Walmart certainly won't advertise the number of iPads that they actually have.

    I got an iPad at Walmart tonight! 64GB, WiFi-Only, in white. They started selling them at midnight sharp. Looks like they had about 40 units to sell (was at the WalMart in Doral, North Miami).

    The 64GB 4G models sold out pretty quick. I was just looking for WiFi only though, so turned out ok. Activating it right now from hotel room here!

    I wish I knew that they were selling it at midnight, they should have opened the apple stores at midnight too, that'd be nice. I ended up preordering it on the website. Now waiting for FedEx!

    It was the luck of the draw though. I was sort of interested in just one model..Verizon 64gb black. Glad i preordered.
