    This is probably for all new orders going forward. My order still says "Late April". I guess we will know for sure when someone preorders today at some point.

    Someone please place an order and let us know what the date you get when you order now is -- I want to order but I am going to be away for 5 days and fear it would come then ....

    Any iPad ordered today will ship by May 7th, and I think it is safe to say, it would not ship much sooner. If they ship it and the person is not there to sign for it, they will leave a notice to call the local shipper and arrange pickup or deleivery.

    The issue I see, is that they only promise to ship in April. If so, then a May 1 delivery is very possible until we get concrete info.

    I got the "late April" E-mail too - ordered on 3/12. Given that the 23rd is "Earth Day", and I wouldn't count the iPad as "green", I'm betting on shipments starting on the 27th, to arrive by the 30th - ie: late April. Also note that my CC has not been hit for the iPad - all of the accessories, yes, but not the iPad.

    Just checked my credit card online tonight and I've got a pending charge for the 3g ipad and the shipping charges... looks promising!
