“I just received the following email from a PR agency,” Matthew Miller reports for ZDNet.
If you want to be the first person amongst your friends and colleagues to have the new iPad, you will need to head to your local Walmart. Starting at 12:01 a.m. local time on March 16, a limited supply of the new iPad will be available at your local 24-hour Walmart. Other retailers’ doors don’t open until 8 a.m. local time, so you can get to work on time and beat the rush by coming to Walmart.
In addition, multiple sources have told us that at
east some Best Buys will be doing the same: iPad sales start at 12:01am local time.
Call your local stores to make sure they’ll be open and selling iPads.
