Called Apple about my ipad 3g they informed me that it was being shipped april 30th.
My mistake. Apparently my old eyes jumped a line. I took delivery of my 10W USB Power Adapter today. When checking the bank this morning I noted that Apple had blocked the money for the Ipad. I then went to order status and read the wrong line. I heard that Apple has announced delivery on April 30th. I guess this old man will just have to wait another week for Christmas.
I pre ordered two 3G 64GB iPads. Apple debited my checking account for them yesterday, 22 April. Empirically over the past month, I have noticed that when my checking account was debited for the power adaptor, wireless keyboards, and iPad docks, cases, etc. the item was shipped within two days after my checking account had been debited.
Thanks for clarifying TomCat - I wish you would have been right. I've got several people who are waiting on 3G models and once Apple announced the 30th as the delivery date we were planning on an un-boxing / champagne party for a week from today.
Just got off the phone with apple rep.. says they debitted me today.. so i guess that Tuesday then.. the suspense is killing
