Apple fanatics will be able to place their iPad orders at 5:30 AM Pacific time (8:30 Eastern) tomorrow, Friday, March 12th. The pre-orders will be available through Apple.com, and are expected to ship in the United States next month - April 3rd to be precise.
The Unofficial Apple Weblog learned about the pre-order time after it asked Apple for the information in an e-mail.
Let's assume you're the sort of person who wants an iPad; if so, you can still wait for the launch date and pick up an iPad at your local Apple store (or at Best Buy a little bit after launch). However, there's a possibility that it will sell out and you'll be left hanging. If this scenario worries you, you'll want to place your order online to be sure you get one before your friends and colleagues. You know, if you're into that kind of one-upmanship.
But if you're the sort of person who thinks the device is more hype than substance, you can go ahead and sleep in tomorrow.
