    Well, I just placed my order for my 16GB Wi-Fi iPad from the Apple Website about an hour ago and I just checked up on my order and it says the following:

    IPAD WI-FI 16GB-USA
    Ships: Jun 8
    Delivers: Jun 11

    My question is... is that normal ship/delivery time for an iPad? That's quite a while. From today (5/22) to June 11th, that's 19 days. That seems like quite a lot to me.

    Is this normal or does the ETA go down over time?

    Thanks in advance.

    You've got 10 business days there until it projects to ship. The delivery actually sounds ambitious, but have no clue where you live. It all looks reasonable.

    For comparison's sake, I ordered mine May 12, and the anticipated ship date is listed at May 26. However, I have obsessively checked the order status, and it is now switched from Item not shipped to "Prepared for shipping." These are happy times!

    One of the major reasons for the delay is Apple is completing intermatioal orders for delivery on May 28
    Apple is blown out the door by the demand so unfortunately you have to wait. Shortage of suppy I suspect will continue through to July Apple Australia sold all allocated stock for delivery on May 28 with in 24 hours

    Oh alright thanks for all the quick replies. I'm so excited to get my ipad and I totally forgot about the international orders. Quick question... I ordered my ipad today andwas wondering if when I buy something from apple online l, do they charge my credit card immediately or so they wait until the ipad would start to ship to my address.

    Again, thanks in advance. This is such an awesome forum. Thanks for all the quick replies so far.

    I don't think you will be charged until it actually ships. That's how it was going here (NY, USA).

    Same here. Today I sold my 16gb wifi and ordered the 32gb 3g and I'm getting the same exact ship and deliver dates. I don't know if I can wait that long!!!

    I believe I would have waited to sell until I had the new one in hand :) After having mine since the 30th, I can't imagine being without it! It seems the shipping is taking longer and longer, as stated above, probably due to international orders. I ordered one for my daughter online on May 1 and had it in hand on May 11.

    I ordered mine on the 25th and it's not scheduled until the 15th. I did get my keyboard attachment though. I'm really hoping it will ship sooner. I'm already getting impatient!

    I've been waiting on Best Buy, too, but I'm ready to order online. One question --- when are you charged, order date or ship date?

    It's definitely ship date. I ordered accessories with my ipad and I was only charged as they were being sent out. I got most of the accessories before I even got the pad.
