    Members of iPadForums.net have reported this morning their iPad Wi-Fi pre-orders have started shipping and tracking numbers have been provided. The iPads are expected to be delivered by UPS on April 3rd, however UPS does not guarantee Saturday delivery on all cities so unfortunately some customers may have to wait until April 5th. It will be interesting to see if any packages slip through the cracks and get delivered before the 3rd!

    Thanks for the tip Brobar,LMControl!

    I wonder which one of us is going to be the lucky internet celebrity that gets his iPad delivered early by a rookie UPS driver...

    I just called the UPS Sacramento Distribution Center. They are not making any deliveries on Saturday and have heard of no special circumstances. He said all deliveries posted for an April 3rd Delivery will deliver on the following business day April 5th. I knew i should have did an in store pick up... or wish Apple would have considered the 3rd being a Saturday. I wish they would have went with Fed X,, I once heard that UPS was buying out FedX and they were going to call the new delivery company FedUps.. heee heee...

    What?
    That's the first news I get of a Slate in june... Rumors or wishful thinking?

    In Canada we'll be getting the iPad 3G in june, why should I bother with it if a Slate comes along?

    UPS confirmed this morning that if Apple specified a Saturday delivery, that would be honored - at least in Phila. I do have a tracking # and can see it left China, but no delivery date.

    @pogo1 - Does the status on the Apple website display delivery for 4/3? It should...or are you referring to UPS website? Just checked my UPS status and it's not showing a delivery date either.
