iPad at the Apple Store at 9am Saturday

There have been many rumors around whether or not Apple would have the iPad available in the Apple Store on Saturday. Now it's official: starting lining up now because the doors open at 9am.

There have been many rumors around whether or not Apple would have the iPad available in the Apple Store on Saturday. Now we've received official word from Apple that the company is planning to make them available for people that walk in off the street beginning at 9am on Saturday.

I ordered my iPad during the first day of pre-order, so as long as the local UPS Store can handle a Saturday delivery, mine should be arriving early morning Saturday. However, if you want to get your hands on one and don't want to wait until April 12th for it to arrive, you might want to line up outside of your local Apple Store.

I figured that Apple would have some on-hand on sale day. After all, traditionally the Apple Store is the best source for any Apple products on launch day. I remember lining up for the iPhone and iPhone 3G, in hopes of grabbing one on launch day, and while the local AT&T stores were sold out, the Apple Store was still going strong.

By the way, if you're still not sold on the iPad, check out Apple's latest guided tours. They'll definitely try to convince you to part with your hard earned cash.

Will you be lining up on Saturday or did you place a pre-order? Or, are you (shock) not interested in one?
