If you just can't wait to buy an iPad, or rather, can't wait to reserve your slot to buy an iPad, you may be getting up early tomorrow: Pre-orders start at 8.30am EST Friday. That's 5.30am, Pacific.
Since these will be pre-orders for the first available iPad, your early start tomorrow will save your spot for either a Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi+3G-equipped model, on their respective release dates of April 3 and "late April". If you pre-order through your local store, you can reasonably expect to get your iPad day of launch; if you pre-order through Apple's website, they'll ship it on launch day, but no earlier.
So, who's gonna take the dive? [LoopInSight]
