Apple's iPad is available to the masses today, both in stores and online. Online purchases could be made as early as 1 a.m. Pacific Time/4 a.m. Eastern Time. However, for retail stores, such as Apple, Best Buy, Verizon Wireless, and Walmart, the newest iPad isn't available until 5 p.m. local time!

So much for Black Friday! This means antsy customers will be lining up and waiting ALL DAY just to get their hands on the latest model.
