Both the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+3G models are available for preorder; we know that the release date for Wi-Fi iPads is April 3rd, but the release date for 3G iPads has not yet been confirmed beyond “late April.”
According to Gizmodo, if you preorder over the phone through your local store, you have a good shot at getting an iPad on April 3rd, but if you preorder through the site, “they’ll ship it on launch day, but no earlier,” so even if you’re one of that crowd of unknown size who just can’t wait to get your hands on one, you may want to check yourself for a bit rather than ordering online.
Here’s the link, if you’re interested in preordering or just looking.
