The new iPad is going to be available from the Apple Store and some retailers beginning Friday morning. Anyone who didn’t already pre-order will be braving the crowds to be a part of the “resolutionary” revolution. That’s fun and all, but we’re going to let you in on something. You can get a new iPad shortly after midnight if you go to Walmart.
We’ve gotten word that 24-hour Walmart stores will begin selling the new iPad at 12:01am Friday morning. Walmart will have a limited supply of the 16GB iPad for the standard price of $499. You can also purchase the iPad 2 at its newly discounted price of $399 if Retina displays don’t mean anything to you.
So there you go. Save yourself some hassle and take the path less chosen by hanging out in the electronics section of Walmart tonight.
