iPad training to begin March 10, launch on 26th?

Apple will begin training its retail employees on the iPad beginning March 10, according to a new report. Citing anonymous inside sources, as well as an Apple Store manager in Southern California, The Examiner reports that commercials for the device will begin airing on March 15, with e-book capabilities as a point of emphasis, and that Friday, March 26 is a “very likely” date for the device’s launch, although the official date has yet to be set. Finally, the report states that 3G versions of the device won’t be available until April or possibly May, and that customers who “camp out” for the iPad launch will receive an unspecified “special gift.” At its iPad special event on January 27, Apple declined to give an exact launch date for the device, saying instead that the Wi-Fi version would launch in roughly “60 days,” with the 3G version launching about 30 days after its Wi-Fi-only counterpart.
