Planning on skipping the Apple Store in favor of your local Best Buy on iPad launch day? Not so fast—sources are reporting the the only Best Buy stores that will carry the newfangled Apple gadget on April 3 will be stores with official "Apple Solutions Consultants" on staff. Our advice: Check with your local Best Buy beforehand to find out if they'll be stocking the iPad. As for online shoppers, will not have the iPad on launch day. [TUAW]
