This morning I received notice that my iPad is on the way. As you can imagine, I'm extremely happy about this!
However, there is something that everyone should know. My iPad is being shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS) Worldwide Express NOT Fedex. If all goes well (with customs) I'll get my machine on Good Friday (yes, UPS is working on Good Friday).
I called Apple's customer service to inquire about this. She said that both Fedex and UPS are major carriers for them and sometimes they're shipped via UPS. Just thought you'd like to know.
