It turns out that "select" Apple Specialist locations -- independently-owned stores authorized by Apple to sell and service its products -- will be getting iPad stock to sell on Saturday. In our experience it's hit-or-miss; we've called a few locations around the country this morning and have been given answers ranging from "no" to "we'll have display units, not retail units" to a straight-up "yes," so we recommend that you call the Specialist near you if you're looking for a stealth way to avoid the bedlam that's likely going to be brewing at proper Apple Stores. Complicating matters, though, is the fact that we're also being told these Specialists are currently under NDA, which means you might not be able to get a straight answer out of 'em today -- but hey, at least be on notice that you've got a Plan B (or C) if neither Apple nor Best Buy are able to hook you up in about 48 hours' time.
