Exactly. First come first serve and scalettohara1 seems to have been among the very first. I am not far behind. The next few days may reveal many other early 3G orders getting ship dates.

I'm pretty sure these babies have been collecting dust in a warehouse in China at least for one week. They should've started shipping them a few days ago. This is all a buzz generator, hype forming tactic to get that stock even higher.

Man, dust yours well, that Chinese dust is probably toxic! <g>

That makes sense since the ipad already had the official "launch" I don't think there's going to be another launch date to get them all in people's hands at the same time. So logic dictates the soft target for the first preorders(placed prior to todays 5/7 target) should be shipped by "Late April" meaning this week and next week. All orders placed in the second round will ship by 5/7.

I'd have to agree that Apple loves the free publicity and general hysteria of the release day. The 3G release will be as big if not bigger than the wiFi. My guess is that tomorrow the announcement will be made that the 3Gs will be in stores and delivered this Saturday the 24th. This whole scenario seems to be the same as the build up to April 3rd in many ways. Just say I'm hopeful.........

I rec'd my email stating a late april shipping date... so I will try not to expect an actual shipping notice before 4/30... & anything before that will be a bonus.
I did notice how the email thanked me for my recent order... I ordered on the first day, 6 weeks ago.
I checked my bank acct... no new activity from apple.
so I will continue to wait.... & wait some more
People This is Getting Ridiculous
People Your new iPad will get delivered to you when Apple releases them. All your moaning and *****ing will not hurry up this great event. My advice patience is a virtue.
Anyhow I received an email from apple this morning. I have enclosed a copy of it to put all this other conjecture to rest. I have sanitized and removed the usual information.

I trust this will finally put all this previous waffling to rest.
I think this makes sense and certainly would explain why they never publicized a release date. I ordered on the afternoon of the 14th so would hope that I am still in for getting mine before the end of April but am not holding my breath for the 24th. No email received yet.

iPad 3 64g LTE and trying VERY hard to resist buying the iPad 4!
While I am hoping that I get mine on the 24th, the fact is they state shipping is late April. That could mean a May 1 delivery and still meet the promise. Now about Apple spending a bundle to ship priority, that is not a reasonable assumption. The iPad wifi shipped priority. Not to get them to customers any sooner, but to guarantee they would all arrive on the same day. They could not do that with standard shipping. For example, if I order anything Apple and go free standard rate, it will be on the road for three-four days. As many of these are going out, it is cost effective to bulk ship to the distribution centers, but they cannot just leave them lying around at UPS/FEDEX depots. So strike a deal for expedited delivery because they do not have to hand sort until the last stop.
