    Kind of interesting in that on my order my 3-g ships late april, but my case ships April 15 to deliver April 20th. I'm supposed to get the dock by April 3rd and an adaptor is scheduled to ship on May 28th.

    I wonder if the case shipping dates are guesstimates for the unit itself?

    I would assume that they are going to end up shipping everything together. Think of all the preparation costs involved in packaging multiple shipments at different times for around 1 million items.

    BTW: How much are they charging for shipping your items?

    I ordered the 64GB 3G with the case and stand. The ipad was late April, the stand was April 3 shipping and the case was April 20th delivery. All shipping is free.

    If the shipping is free the items must be coming from different locations. They must be making money hand over fist on these to be able to ship around 1 million items for free!

    I ordered multiple items with my 3g 64GB, and all have different shipping dates, and several items have arrived - earphones and MobileMe have arrived, and the Apple Wireless keyboard is in transit... some carrier somewhere is making a LOT of money... they ship from all over the place.
    Can't wait to get the 3G model... the wait is killing me.
    THIS will be my FIRST Apple product - believe it or not!

    No '3G' for me... at least not yet...

    I started to go the '3G' route, but decided to wait because of (1) the cost of 2 of them :eek:, and (2) I'm beginning to hate AT&T and I don't want them in anymore of my web devices. The 'Pay-Go' service they slapped together at the last minute makes me nervous...

    I trust Apple, that's why I preordered 2 iPads, version 1.00! :p

    I trust AT&T about as far as I can throw them... :mad:
