Best Buy: No More iPads in Stock

Retailer Best Buy is sold out of the Apple iPad. For those looking to purchase the device at one of the 673 stores with Apple shops, the company expects a replenishment of iPads on Sunday, April 11. Best Buy stores are said to have launched the iPad on April 3rd with only five of each iPad model in stock, a total of 15 per store.

The Apple Store has no such inventory problems to date. Pre-ordering online for the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G model is still open, although a ship date for the cellular data-capable model has not been announced by Apple. The model is scheduled to be delivered in "late April" and it's unclear whether or not Best Buy will have these in stock immediately.

Best Buy to Release Limited iPad Inventory on April 3 at 9 AM

Looking to avoid lines at the Apple Store on April 3rd? Apple has confirmed that Best Buy will carry all three Wi-Fi only models in "most" of its stores starting at 9 am. Unfortunately, TUAW found out that inventory will be limited to only 15 units per store, with each model equally represented in stock. This means that only 5 of each iPad will be available at each store.

The 9 am release time means that Best Buy stores will not open early for the event. Best Buy's website has no mention of the iPad as of this writing and the device will not be available for online ordering from the company at this time. As for which Best Buy stores will actually have 15 iPads in stock, those labeled as Apple Solutions Consultants (ASC) and “Apple Shops” will have the device and accessories.

Reports indicate that mega-retailer Best Buy has begun training employees for the April 3rd launch of the Apple iPad. Although it was noted some time ago that Best Buy would be carrying the Apple iPad, since then reports have been conflicting regarding whether the iPad would be at Best Buy on launch day or if the non-Apple store retailers would have to wait until after the initial launch period to begin selling the long-awaited tablet.

Best Buy has announced that it has no plans to open stores early on April 3rd, as it expects that doing so would result in additional expenses with comparably little financial benefit. Display and promotional materials for the iPad are expected to arrive at Best Buy locations early next week.
