Reports from AppAdvice today quote an apparently “reliable source” with inside information regarding pre order dates for the upcoming iPad launch. Presumably, if the rumor is true, the pre order will only be for the Wi-Fi version of the iPad which is supposed to launch 30 days before the 3G model, according to Jobs. While the source says pre orders could begin as early as next week, you more than likely wont get to buy an iPad before March 29th. This is considering the 60 days until an official launch that Jobs mentioned at the product launch.
The article posted by AppAdvice reports:
According to a reliable source of ours familiar with the matter, Apple will be starting the presale of the iPad as soon as February 25th.
Presale will be US only, and should be limited to the Wi-Fi version for now. If Apple holds to the announced schedule, you should then receive your iPad within approximately 30 days.
