    Yay, got it! Well, ordered it, anyway. Black 64gb Wifi. I should receive it 8-12 business days after shipping, whatever that means.

    I logged on to the online Apple Store at 3:45 am and started refreshing the screen at 4 am. Finally placed my order by 4:10 am (they were a bit tardy updating the website). Just received my confirmation email for the order... White 64 GB WiFi with Orange smart cover and Digital TV adapter. It shows a shipping date of April 15 and estimated receiving date of April 22. So almost another month to wait!

    So how come when you are ordering they don't ask you who is your preferred carrier?
    Doesn't that matter?

    No because Bell Rogers and Telus Use the same Peripheriqs inside, so they ask you the SIM you want after

    While in US AT&T and Verizon use different technology so an AT&T Card wont work in an Verizon machine

    That is why USA needs to choose on buy

    FROM apple.com

    Wi-Fi + 3G model: UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    Wi-Fi + 3G for Verizon model: CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1900 MHz)

    SO AT&T use GSM and Verizon use CDMA

    I was here at 3 but no one was around so I stayed in the truck for 1 1/2 hours.
