We-hell-hell, what have we here? It seems as though those placeholder SKUs that popped up in Best Buy's database a few weeks ago were for iPads after all. Both TUAW and Engadget have some shots of Best Buy's confidential "Apple iPad Launch Playbook"—their term, not ours—and the documents suggest that some 675 Best Buy locations will have the iPad available in limited quantities on April 3.

If you missed the window for ordering one of the first run online, lining up outside the old neighborhood Best Buy next Saturday morning might not be a bad idea. [TUAW and Engadget]
