Apple Online StoreMultiple sources are reporting to us about telephone conversations they’ve had with Apple reps regarding changing their iPad orders from delivery to in-store pickup.

Multiple iPad buyers have been told that in order to do such a change, the delivery order would have to be cancelled and a new in-store pickup order completed, but that iPad orders (which began this morning at 8:30am EST) have been “so overwhelming” that new iPad orders may not be available for in-store pickup on April 3.

Currently, Apple’s online store still states that those who reserve their iPads (Wi-Fi-only) will be able to pick them up at their local Apple Retail Store “between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on April 3.”

We’ve inquired with Apple, but the company has not yet responded. We’ll update here with more information if and when it becomes available.
