RadioShack will begin to offer the iPad 2 at 500 locations around the United States tomorrow, March 29, according to a new report. Citing an internal RadioShack notice, Mac Rumors reports that stores that will offer the device have been sent details about the launch; the report notes that representatives at multiple stores have confirmed that they are scheduled to launch the device tomorrow, but stock levels are unknown. iLounge has contacted RadioShack for comment on the story and will update this post if/when we receive a reply.

Update: RadioShack has since confirmed its iPad 2 rollout, and is now offering an online tool to help customers find stores carrying the device.

I ordered an iPad 2 online on the day they went on sale. I still have not gotten it but yet they are available in Europe and now at Radio Shack tomorrow. I am NOT happy.

What a joke… I went to my Radio Shack in Manhattan and they had TWO (total!). I was the 2nd person on line (got there about 30 mins before they opened) and the guy in front of my got a 32gb black wi-fi and the other one they had was a 16gb wi-fi (which I did not buy).

Don’t waste your time going… I’m sure if the Radio Shack in Manhattan was only delivered two then every Radio Shack was given two also…

The only good thing is they put my name first on the list for when the next shipment arrives and will hold a 32gb or 64gb for me… The manager said they were told they’d be receiving more this week, but who knows.

So it looks like Apple sold 1,000 total iPads to Radio Shack (2 each for the 500 stores that are getting it)

They had a couple but you had to buy apple care and an accessory.

These guys are dirty. It’ll be a long time (if ever) before i go to their silly stores any more.

Greedy. Greedy. Greedy.

I waited 2 hours for one Radio Shack to open and when it did they had 1 iPad—which, oh by the way, was promised to another store. My next stop was more satisfying as I was 2nd in line and this RS had 9. Given the whopping stock of 9 there was not much of a selection. Also the manager limited purchases to one per customer but the RS personnel did not even know the difference between the ATT and the Verizon versions. All that aside I am now an owner of the iPad 2—and there was much rejoicing.
