Not that prospective buyers need any more incentive to do so, but Apple sent out an email this morning concerning the Friday debut of the iPad 2. It is a reminder that sales at Apple Retail Stores begin at 5 p.m. across the United States. Under a simple headline, “iPad 2” the message confirms Apple specialists will be available to help buyers choose the perfect model, and to “set everything up just the way you like.” Included is a brilliant display of a white iPad 2 covered with one of Apple’s new iPad Smart Covers. This message takes on an added significance since there are no pre-orders for the iPad 2. To get the second-generation iDevice on Day One, a trip to a retail store is your only solution. Of course, it also might help to pray that enough iPad 2’s will be in stock to make everyone happy. Are you planning on buying your iPad 2 on Friday? Let us know by leaving your comments below.
