Walmart Kicking Off iPad Mayhem Tomorrow With Sales Beginning At 12:01 A.M.

Walmart at midnight? Hope you like getting sprayed in the face with mace.

Can you literally not contain your excitement for the new iPad and its glorious Retina display? Will you be unable to sleep tonight because you can’t wait to get in line at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow to buy one? Then you may be in luck because Walmart is kicking things off early.

Starting at precisely 12:01 A.M. tomorrow, Walmart will start selling a limited supply of new iPads at its 24-hour locations around the United States. Apple’s doors aren’t opening until 8 A.M., so you’ll have the opportunity to snag a new tablet before everyone else.

Walmart has said that it will have WiFi-only iPad models available at midnight, so don’t make the trek in your footie pajamas expecting to get a 4G version. These type of ‘limited supply’ sales usually begin and end very quickly, so you may want to show up a little early for any chance at purchasing an iPad. If you can wait until 8 A.M. tomorrow, retailers like Target, Best Buy, and RadioShack will join Apple in selling the new iPad to the masses.
