The iPad 2 was officially released today. The tablet went on sale at 1am PST online, and will be available at Apple stores as well as several Apple resellers (including Walmart, Best Buy, and Target) starting at 5pm today (no matter what time zone you’re in).

Traditionally customers line up outside the Apple Store on the release day of new products in order to be one of the first to get their hands on the device. The iPad 2 is a little different than most Apple releases, however, because it will be available at a variety of other retail outlets at exactly the same time. It will be interesting to see what sorts of lines start to pop up at Apple Stores throughout the day, as well as whether huge lines start to for at other retailers and Verizon and AT&T stores.
