Rumors of an iPad 2 sales freeze that may have gotten Best Buy in hot water with Apple emerged Thursday night and have flitted all over the ‘Net. However, “BRG” ( claims to have the answer in an email from Best Buy:

“Best Buy continues to receive iPad 2 inventory from Apple on a regular basis. As we’ve said previously, we are fulfilling customer reservations first. Our stores have been asked to temporarily hold non-reserved iPad 2 inventory for an upcoming promotion. This is a customary practice for us when there are supply constraints. Best Buy enjoys a great partnership with Apple, and we’re delighted by customer response to iPad 2.”
