iPad Presale Starts Friday, March 12th, 5:30am PST
TUAW is reporting that Apple will begin the pre-order of the iPad tomorrow, at 5:30am PST. They contacted a rep at Apple, who confirmed, the March 12th pre-order date and time. Get your refresh buttons ready!
The hype is really on now. We have an exact time that we can order the next big thing from Apple. Expect Apple’s servers to be a little bogged down tomorrow, as US residents get to pre-order their iPad at 5:30am PST/8:30am EST. Now that you have an exact time, you wont have to stay up until midnight, refreshing your browser’s page over and over, waiting for the Apple Online Store to change.
If you live outside of the US, but have a US credit card and billing address, you will be able to order the iPad, as well. If not, you’re going to have to wait an extra month, like the rest of us.
UPDATE 1: The US Apple Store is down. iPad release seems imminent.
