    To those who wait come the spoils. I'm glad there's a thread.

    Look at it this way - like all day 1 product 1 rollouts - there are going to be some glitches and 'oh shoots'. Probably not a lot - but there will be some. All of those issues will be address or fixes in the works by the time our units arrive.

    Don't you all kind of feel like you're 7 years old and it's 4 days until Christmas - and it seems like a friggen eternity?

    I feel like a child in the car with my parents on vacation. "ARE WE THERE YET!!!

    On Christmas time, when I used to look through closets for the gifts; shake them, and sometimes open the ends and peek. Can't do that now! :D

    IpadOne,

    Arrggghh! That is frustrating!

    I'm looking forward to your website opening up. The docking station looks interesting. Will you have something like the camera kit, but maybe cheaper?

    Sure thing. I need the safe place to go (even if a few 1day people have snuck into the thread...:mad:) to vent my frustrations.

    I figured when I ordered the 3G that it would be a good thing to have time to cancel my order if the iPad ended up sucking. I really don't like the closed nature of these Apple devices much preferring the concept of Android. The problem is the execution is just not there for other devices and the closed nature does seem to lead to quality at the end of the day. What pushed me over the edge was when Apple announced that they would support DRM free ePub just like they do MP3s. The iPad will replace my Sony Reader (though I have loved my Reader without 3G... hrm...).

    Anyway, I'm glad folks are enjoying the theropy and remember - no happy wifi stories are allowed in this thread! ;)

    I considered ordering both to avoid some of the pain this month but could not justify it. I figured I'd hold onto it and return it and eat the restocking fee. I may end up getting the WiFi version at Best Buy with their good return 30 policy if I can find it in stock and Apple doesn't come up with a 3G date soon. Who knows, I may end up not missing the 3G/GPS. I also fear they are having problems since I don't understand why Apple can't be more specific than "Late April" at this point.

    Anyway, fellow sufferers, pull me in off the ledge before I leap and abandon 3G! Clearly everyone out there is nuts to be buying a WiFi only iPad!

    -Greg

    This is exactly what I was thinking! I would much prefer either Android or the ChromeOS, but it looks like those won't be available for 6 months or more. I will probably end up selling the iPad in 6 - 8 months when something else comes along. :D

    Is anyone going to check out the iPad tomorrow anyway? I took Monday off so I could go down the Apple store and actually hold an iPad in my hands (even if it's just a wi-fi one :D)

    I am embarrassed to report that I cracked and bought the WiFi iPad at Best Buy today. I went to take a look and touch one while I wait for my 3G and they had one more 64g in stock. They have a 2 week return policy (don't get 30 days on computer equipment) and while I love it I am pretty sure that it will go back in favor of the 3G version. I know it will mean having no iPad for a period of time while I wait but I think it was worth it to get the edge off. I wish everyone in the support thread the best and will be back with you in two weeks.

    -Greg
