Good morning fellow 3G'ers. Yesterday was an awesome launch day for many of our forum members. A bit bittersweet for us reading about all the fun they were having but worry not, our day will come. Now that the initial launch is over, apple can concentrate on getting our "babies" in our hands. After drowning my sorrows last night, in a very nice Cabernet I might add, I have awakened to a new perspective. I'm confident a solid shipping date is forthcoming and I'm very hopeful that fedex is chosen as the shipping partner. Reading about those UPS mishaps, particularly what happened to iDan, made me shudder. So in the meantime let's soak in the information our wifi bretheren provide. Let's continue to keep the excitement going because our launch party will be real soon and we won't need a "hotspot" to have it!
Carry on 3G'ers...

Anyone still with me or did everyone give in and buy one yesterday? It was a close call for me :p
Oh I thought about it but the threat of my wife freaking kept me from doing it. Truth is once she sees mine she will definitely want one. So don't worry, you still have company in your misery. Soon "Late April" will become a real date.
Nope... still here, still waiting for my 64GB 3G iPad.

Sigh... I might have to order another 3G! :p And once my mom sees the iPad, my guess is that she'll want one too! :rolleyes:
See now if my husband would want one I would be able to buy one now and play with it :p He is not interested and would completely freak out if I bought two. He worries about my love for gadgets sometimes. haha
"Casually" dropped by Apple store yesterday to see if the hype matches reality, trying hard to feel superior that I'm holding out for the 3g...but fighting the urge to snatch a wifi out of some young punk's hands and dash down the street. Thing is, I've struggled with every kind of handheld, laptop, slate, palmtop, PDA, mini, netbook, tablet etc. known to man waiting for the Real Thing. Happy to report: It has arrived! Waiting a few more days (weeks...?) wont kill me. Maybe. Thanks for commiserating.
I got my iPad for Easter:
It even came with the optional dock and external keyboard :D
Tomorrow I'm heading down to the local Apple store or Best Buy so that I can at least hold an iPad in my hands.
Has anyone seen any hints or any information about when the 3G's are shipping? I would have thought that Apple would have said something yesterday :mad:
I'm pretty confiden will get a firm shipping date this week. Wifi is yesterdays news, the future is 3G!
Rock on 3G'ers!
