Pre-ordering for the Apple iPad is available as of March 12th, 2010.
For full details and answers to frequently-asked-questions (FAQ) about the iPad pre-ordering process, please visit our article entitled iPad Pre-Ordering: Important Details.
As of Feb 15th, the FCC has yet to approve the iPad.
Until the iPad is approved by the FCC, Apple cannot legally sell or offer pre-ordering on the device.
We expect that once Apple has obtained FCC approval for the iPad, pre-ordering will follow shortly thereafter.
