    I had to pick up my wife at the airport this morning and was dreading that they'd show up while I was gone. Got home and didn't see the dreaded delivery attempt tag, so now it's just a waiting game. To make matters worse I just found out that the FedEx distribution center is only about 2 miles from my house, so I'm regretting not getting them to hold for pickup when it arrived there.

    Yeah, it's only .3 pounds lighter, that's not a real noticeable difference. You could probably tell holding one in each hand, but it's not enough to make it easy to hold with one hand etc.

    Looks like they released the 3G units

    Well, I've been watching this thread for a while. It seems that the 32/64 3G machines were absent from shipping.

    Mine just showed up as "prepared for shipment". Was ordered 3:30AM PST Mar 11. 32GB AT&T Black.

    Time marches on.

    All you other early orderers probably will see "movement" soon. It was pushing those "3-5 days till shipping". Probably just got it built.

    Regards
    Steve

    I was thinking because it's At & T but, this thread got so long I don't remember the trends. it seem like I heard a lot of different versions not shipping as fast. I ordered 14 minutes after you (4:17 EST) and I got mine today, a 64GB white Verizon model.

    I had not seen any of my model shipping as of yet, reading three different forums.

    I tried calling Apple today to see if I could have my ship date moved up from the current 4/1. I actually have a legitimate reason for that on one of the iPads I ordered, so thought I'd give it a try. The CS guy I spoke to this morning was very nice and understanding, and said he'd be happy to accommodate me by moving up the production date AND give expedited shipping. He did all this as if it was routine. I never received the confirmation e-mail on this, and when I called 6 hrs later, was told they do not do such things. I even took it to a management representative, whatever that is. She was very pleasant, but reiterated they can not move anyone's production date forward. She offered to refund the cover, but didn't budge on the shipping or ship date.

    Oh well....

    Yes. Praise God. My iPad is now prepared for shipment. I ordered at 4:18am on Friday morning. I received my smart cover today. And after church tonight I checked my order status. Yes!!!
