iPad 2 Release Time: Apple Store, AT&T and Verizon

By Updated on

So tomorrows the day you can get your hands on a shiny new iPad 2. Once you have decided on which color and version you want, you then need to decide where to part with your hard earned cash.

You can go onto the Apple Store and get one online, or you can line up at AT&T or Verizon Wireless stores. Otherwise you can use one of the 236 Apple stores across the country. Sales start in the stores at 5p.m local time according to Matt Hamblen over at Computerworld.

AT&T and Apple will start online sales at 1 a.m. Pacific, with Verizon starting telephone sales at 5 p.m. Eastern time. If you have decided on the Wi-Fi only model your best bet will probably be Apple’s online store, or retail store. This is because AT&T and Verizon will only have the Wi-Fi and 3G versions.

Wi-Fi only models in both colors are the same as the original iPad, starting at $499 for 16GB of storage up to $699 for 64GB. The Wi-Fi +3G cost $130 more for each model from AT&T and Verizon. 26 other countries including most of Europe and Canada will have to wait until the 25th before they see the iPad 2.

If you decide to order online you have to take into account shipping times before you see your new device in your hands, but it is one way to avoid the queues.

Have you decide where to get your iPad 2 yet?
