that its retail stores would open early at 8am on Friday morning to accommodate the masses that want to purchase a new iPad and
missed out on the pre-order opportunities
. In addition to the U.S., potential customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will also have their chance to grab the fresh new tablet.
Apple also made its clear that its U.S. retail partners -- Best Buy, Radio Shack, Sam’s Club, Target -- will also carry the new iPad.
Today, however, Walmart informed us that it would jump the gun on competing stores -- and even Apple stores -- by offering the new iPad at 12:01am on Friday.
"A limited supply of the new iPad will be available at your local 24-hour Walmart," said a Walmart representative in an email to
. "Other retailers’ doors don’t open until 8 a.m. local time, so you can get to work on time and beat the rush by coming to Walmart."
The company notes that it will have the 16GB Wi-Fi models in both black and white. It doesn't, however, indicate if it will sell the higher-capacity models or models with LTE.

has been overwhelmingly positive, but we'll have to wait until the ever-critical consumers get the devices in their hands to see how the tablet crowd feels about the device and its slightly expanded dimensions.
In other iPad news, iFixit has already gotten its hands on the tablet and disassembled it. For those that are into gadget teardowns, head on over to
to seen the new iPad in the buff.
