Online sales of the iPad 2 are scheduled to begin on March 11th at 12:01 PST, according to Apple sales representatives.
Both MacRumors forum members and MacAppsDaily have posted screenshots where Apple employees confirm the iPad 2's online availability.
9to5Mac has heard that in-store reservations will not be allowed initially.
Spoke with an Apple store chat representative: Confirmed online sales begin at 12:01am PST on 3/11/2011. Additionally, the in-store pick up reservations will not be allowed initially, according to the chat rep.
It's strange for Apple not to provide online pre-orders when releasing a device. It's also unclear if Apple will offer next day shipment as the 11th is a Friday and Saturday delivery usually costs much more. Perhaps they are looking to generate long lines. A 5:00pm release time gives people the entire day to get in line.
