Wi-Fi versions of the iPad will be available this Saturday

For those of you looking for something "magical" in the words of Steve Jobs, Apple will begin selling its much hyped iPad this Saturday in its retail locations starting at 9 AM. Those that pre-ordered the devices early from Apple's website will receive their units by Saturday. Those that waited a while longer to pre-order online will have to wait until April 12 for their iPads to arrive if they don't feel like heading down to one of 221 Apple retail stores or "most Best Buy stores" which will stock the device.

“iPad connects users with their apps and content in a far more intimate and fun way than ever before,” said Jobs. “We can’t wait for users to get their hands and fingers on it this weekend.”

For those that come into Apple stores to purchase an iPad, a "free Personal Setup service" will be made available. Apple Geniuses will help setup your email or download apps to your iPad. Just don't expect the same service from Best Buy without some kind of Geek Squad fee attached.

The only units available this Saturday will be the WiFi-only iPads. IPads which feature 3G connectivity will not be available until later this month. The iPad features a 9.7" screen, 16GB to 64GB of NAND flash storage, a 1GHz Apple A4 ARM processor, Bluetooth 2.1, and 802.11n. Interestingly, those wishing for a camera will have to purchase a $29 iPad Camera Connection Kit.

Wi-Fi-only iPads are priced at $499, $599, and $699 respectively for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models.

How the little rotating qoutes at the bottom of Dailytech are all pro Apple and anti-MS, not that that's any surprise from a tech site.

Unless you sat through and refreshed 50+ times, I doubt you saw all of the quotes in the database...

Yep, that's pro-Apple/anti-MS alright...
