Dont worry they are coming. Mine only has small pin lights in a few spots. I only noticed them in the dark... during a reset. Like everything Apple makes things smaller and better with time

Who did you order through? That post was a little garbled as your readied to rage quit and ALT-F4. Aafes?
Ah, Army and Air Force Exchange Service. Well that's part of your bottleneck. Not much help for that.

I got one a few weeks ago and then had it exchanged for one (they had extra stock) and had to return that one for store credit. I'm still seeing tons of posts of people getting multiple exchanges...with the flashlight-effect upgrade still in effect.

One thing android does have going for it is google integration. It is amazing, google mail, navigation, maps, sky, body ... The list goes on. It was buggy though with a number of force closes, android 2.x apps that dent even work and just force close etc. The notification system was also really well done and I am hoping apple updates that is iOS 5.
Sorry, but the iPad tablets are just better right now. Give google another year to get their OS and the developers going and I think it will be good
My Ipad2: happily at home since April 18, 2011!
You cancelled today? The 6

Correct my math but if that not just another week?
And he saved at least 30 thru aafes?
But then, his iPad 2 could have possibly shipped this weekend if we use other peoples testimonies of up to 2 week early arrivals as a measuring stick!
So what I'm reading is:
discount + impatient = empty handed and directionless.
*looks at compass in search of due north. Compass bings to the left stops directly on the symbol of an apple!*
Hmm the only way Togo.
Btw enjoy you Doombox!

I ordered my iPad on 11 Mar also from AAFES, and am still waiting. They're currently saying that its back-ordered and possibly won't ship until May.
Hopefully it won't be that long, I've just had to step back from being upset about it and just wait, as other posters have said. I am getting it at a slight discount, but it is frustrating that I ordered something a month ago and it may be another month before I get it.
I have one reserved at Best Buy, over a month. Ordered one from Apple, delivery date April 28.So, whichever one comes first. Frustrating I know. But, if it wasn't in demand, I wouldn't want it. Could get a Xoom anytime, plenty in stock at Best Buy. That tells me something. I'm waiting.
As anyone who wanted ipad2 I went first day to best buy and get it after one hour in line only. Why complain if you are lazy? Waiting for what?

Called them up and, "Sure! We got plenty!???
I can only guess that no one thinks to look there?
i set out the sunday morning after working a 12 that night, (wife drove) we we went to the best buy and Target on the out skirts of town Nothing, then drove down town, called both apple stores -- nothing, was giving up, gonna order online when i got home, we went to Sams' to get some things, stopped by the Target to get a case for the non existent ipad2 and damn if there wasnt one still sitting in the display case, it was a 3G verizon, i was going for wifi only but what the hell. i snatched it up and i've been very happy ever since.
i do reccomend the availability tools for target and best buy.
i hear Toys R Us will be (not) getting the ipad2, yet another place to look and not find one. I wonder if any have made it overseas yet.
