So at 5pm today you will be able to pick up a 3G version, however if you <a href="http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipad/family/ipad" target="_blank">order online</a> the available date is actually May 7th (although it appears pre-orders are showing up as early as <a href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/9To5Mac-MacAllDay/~3/PDcFw3b6YCY/16372" target="_blank">yesterday</a>). Any of you going to be waiting in line to get yours, or did you have it shipped? I'm curious who is getting the 3G version.&nbsp;</p>

I picked up the 64 GB version at Best Buy (all they had left). They received no 16G units and only five 32GB. The guy in front of me got the last 32 :mad:
