While Apple announced that the iPad would go on sale at the end of March, we’ve yet to hear official details about the actual sale date and procedure.
We have heard whispers the Apple is planning on launching the iPad at retail stores on Friday, March 26th at 6 p.m. in similar fashion to the original iPhone launch.
A blog post from the Examiner now makes similar claims of a March 26th launch date with Apple store employees getting training on the device starting on March 10th. The author also claims that the commercials will begin airing on March 15th. Finally, those who camp out for the iPad will receive a “special gift”.
The 3G enabled version of the iPad will follow the Wi-Fi iPad launch by about 30 days, according to Apple.
