As promised Apple opened its virtual doors around 1 AM this morning and the iPad 2 is available for order on the Apple Online Store. All 18 models, yes 18, are available for order and they all ship in 3-5 business days.
Apple’s iPad 2 Smart Cover is available as well, shipping in 1-2 business days, in 10 colors with either a leather ($69) or Polyurethane ($39) option (5 colors per material). Apple is also selling a dock specific to the new, thinner device – it’s shipping in 1-3 weeks and costs $29.
In addition, Apple is selling an HDMI cable ($39) for the iPad 2 that allows for full video mirroring to a television. The cable even has a slot to charge the device simultaneously.
Those who do not want to order their iPad 2 online can purchase one at an Apple retail, AT$T, Target, Verizon, Best Buy, Walmart, or Sam’s Club store starting March 11th at 5 PM local time.
