How long is it usually between when Apple releases a refreshed product and when authorized retailers like Best Buy and Target get the updates?
I feel like when the last iPod refresh happened it took about a month before Target got the new ones. I ask because my wife is a Target employee and I'm debating how much I want to wait to get the new iPad vs saving 15%.
My wife talked to the analyst, and she said Apple doesn't work with vendors before a release, and it's up to the specific vendor to scramble for orders once the product is announce. Bestbuy and Walmart will be getting it on the first day.
