An Apple Store Question

Hey guys, quick question. I am interested in getting an iPad at launch, but since it won't be available outside of the US, I was thinking of getting over to Buffalo to pick one up at Walden Galleria. Has anyone been to that store at an Apple product launch to let me know if the lines are crazy there? Thanks!

It is a matter of time when iPad will announce the Canadian availability. My speculation is it would be releasing it the same time as US. The WiFi version doesn't need any carrier support.

Oh, cool...that's great. No need to hike so far then. Thought I'd pick up the Wifi model first, since the 3G prob won't work with our carriers until at least Q3-Q4, and by that time, the next gen version will prob be announced.

Also, iBooks is US specific right now as they haven't worked out a deal for Canadian publishers.

If the iPad becomes Rogers exclusive for the Canadian launch like the iPhone was, I wouldn't be surprised if the monthly plan was at least double that of the AT&T pricing at $29.99. We seem to get the short end to everything.

Steve Jobs said yesterday that the 3G models are shipping 30 days after the Wifi only models and it says right on the main iPad page that the 3G models are shipping in April.

Ya, but that's US only. In his keynote he said he was going to work on the international partnerships after the keynote ended.

BTW, does anyone know which of the Apple stores in the GTA will most likely have the least line up?

i am not sure if the information i read was accurate and don't remmber where it is, but i read that it won't be locked to any carrier, fully unlocked and they will charge an extra 130$ on top of wifi model to have 3g(lots of people complaing as the 3g system cost under 10$ in production to add) and apple wants a whopping 130$ us for it

Sherway Gardens. All the other malls will be packed with kids.

Yah, but it uses microsim technology, which is currently not available in any of the Canadian carriers.

It is just the same sim card we've all been using. You just need exacto knife to shape it down.

I bet robbers will u those sim cards for $75 claiming it's more high tech. (Reminds me of the High density diskette scam in the early 90s)

No doubt some RFDer will sell the cut-down version for $10 instead of $8 in the b/s/t here...
