MacRumor‘s Arnold Kim:

We have heard whispers the Apple is planning on launching the iPad at retail stores on Friday, March 26th at 6 p.m. in similar fashion to the original iPhone launch.

Examiner‘s Daryl Deino:

[Apple store employees] will get the first glimpse of the hottest gadget in years, the iPad, on March 10. This will be around the time training begins for the device.

Oh, and if you camp out, rumor has it you might receive a special gift.
