iPad 2 online sales start tonight at 1:00 AM
Grab a cup of tea or coffee and get ready for a late night! If you don’t want to deal with the inevitable lines at the official iPad 2 launch tomorrow at 5:00 PM, you can stay awake late tonight and order it directly from Apple’s online store starting at 1:00 AM PST.
Other than being able to shop in your pajamas, buying online will get you free shipping, the ability to engrave the iPad 2, and you’ll be practically guaranteed to get one within a few days, whereas many of the stores are likely to sell out of existing stock.
Here’s the clip from Apple’s press release (emphasis mine):
