If you've been waiting to cop an iPad 2, you already know it hits stores tomorrow (March 11) afternoon at all Apple retail stores, as well as Target, Best Buy, AT&T, and Verizon Wireless stores. But you probably didn't know that if you don't mind waiting a little longer for delivery, you can order yours as early as 4 AM on Friday.

Apple released a press release early Thursday morning stating that costumers will be able to order the iPad 2 from the online Apple store at the crack of dawn on Friday morning.

So, if you don't feel like camping out or wrestling through the madness of crowds to get yours, all you have to do is wake up crazy early, click a few buttons and go back to sleep.
