Mmm, shiny.

Ready to jump on the bandwagon for the next tech trend? Oh, please, you live in D.C., of course you are! If you're looking to get an iPad this weekend, here's what you need to know.

Local Apple stores are opening an hour early, at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 3. While their goal is to have an iPad for every customer, those who previously reserved them will have priority. Each store will have two separate lines, one for those with a reservation and those without, who will be able to purchase them on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers are expected to begin lining up at least a couple hours in advance.

Apple declined to release numbers on how many iPads have already been reserved. Keep in mind that Sunday is Easter, so many stores will be closed. You can try pre-ordering one online here, although at this point, it won't get you into tomorrow's Reserved lines.

The Wifi models will be available starting the first day; the Wifi + 3G models will be available in late April, according to Apple.com.
