UPDATE: Check each contest website for details and closing dates — newer ones are last.
The contest list has doubled from the original post. If you hear of others, let us know. Scams have also cropped up with iPads as bait, so remember your due diligence.
Before the launch, we wrote about a daring intern who risked his job by staging a contest with the as yet unseen iPad as a prize.
Today, a bunch of contests giving the iPad out as prizes have already cropped up, many involve no-brain activities like tweeting (sorry, witty chiruppers!) or signing up for Facebook groups. (If you can bug fix, try here or here. )
So if you want to get your hands on one without spending any cash, this may be the ticket.
If you come across other ones, please add them in the comments.
NB: If you win one, Cult of Mac staffers reserve the right to come over and play with it..
