    Really crazy what happened in the last 24hs... Everywhere they r sold out, though there are rumors of a new shipment today. I just ordered it online, and I'll get it by apr 6th!
    But last year I got mine earlier despite to the announced shipment date. As far as I know, the demand for the 3g models is higher, I ordered a wifi 16gb.
    What do u guys know?

    I ordered mine (32gb wifi) 6:58 am yeasterday and shipping date says first of April, so i think all orders have for some reason been delayed for 2-3 weeks.
    One other thing is i think you are quite wrong on the demand on 3g models, i actually think the Wifi models sells better. Especially after Apple launched the tethering for the plan. Please also keep in mind that Apple might not actually be making the same amout of every model. For example if 23% of the Ipad 1'st gen sold were 16gb wifi only, then Apple probably is gonna make about 23% of the 2. gen Ipad 16gb wifi only.

    I'm a little worried about the shipping dates too. I mean if the Ipad will ship at the first of April in US how can Apple start selling it in the rest of the world at 25. March? I think there is a good chance that the launch outside US may have been delayed a bit.

    I ordered mine at 8pm ET yesterday... I am still hoping that I'll get it earlier in the store or that the shipment will he rescheduled.
    But yay, my leather smart cover has already been shipped, maybe I'll just try to attach it to my iPad one, lol.

    I ordered mine at 6:58 am yeasterday and it says shipping on the first of April, but maybe it depends where in USA you live? Mine is getting shipped to VA

    It said that mine is about to be shipped on April 1st, too... I live in CT, and all IPads are sold out here. An apple store employee just advised me to come back on Monday, but I really have the feeling that I'll have to wait for the online ordered one... :(
    Any news on how much they sold on the first day? I can't find anything.

    No sales figures officially announced, but I saw a few places estimate 600,000 to be sold the first weekend.
