Apple Begins iPad 2 Pre-Orders At 1AM Pacific

Apple will officially begin taking pre-orders for the Apple iPad 2 at 1AM Pacific time on Friday. Not willing to log on at 1AM? iPad 2 pre-orders will also start taking place at 5PM through various retail chains including AT&T, Apple, Best Buy, Target, Verizon, Walmart and several other smaller resellers.

Customers willing to head over to an Apple Store will also receive Personal Setup service which lets the company configure e-mail and apps for their customers. Also available today are GarageBand and iMovie apps for iPad, both priced at $5 each.

It will be interesting to see how the massive pre-order push goes with so many outlets to purchase from.
