Every customer who buys an iPad 2 at an Apple retail store will be offered free Personal Setup service, helping them customize their iPad 2 by setting up email, loading new apps from the App Store℠ and more, so they’ll be up and running with their new iPad 2 before they leave the store.
-Apple press release, March 10, 2011
So no iPad 2s physically on sale anywhere until 5 pm local time and online orders start at 4 am ET, 1 am PT. They're going to offer personal set-up for every iPad buyer in an Apple store? I know they want to emphasize the Post-PC-ness of the iPad but isn't that going to really clog up the stores and slow things down?
