Bestbuy has pulled the old Apple iPad from its inventory in the USA and is making room for the new iPad 2 which is set to drop on March 11. So not only will you be able to buy this device at any Apple Store, but you have other options if you do not want to rub shoulders with the self-assured boys at the Genius Bar!
If you do not want to run the risk of losing out on the first day, you may have to hit the stores, because Bestbuy will not be doing online ordering for this until March 11 2011.
So it looks like those 2 places will be your best bet to land yourself a spiffy new iPad, although rumors swirl that Target, Kohl, Bed Bath and Beyond and Wallmart will get in on the action too. If anything the original iPad really laid down the distribution chain and the iPad 2 will capitalize on the existing partnerships.
