    Yup, found out that the Best Buy where i had my IPAD 2 reserved finally got another shipment of IPAD 2's, but mine was not among them.

    I've already been waiting over a week, so after talking with an Apple rep i just decided to order it directly from apple, that way i could order the smart cover at the same time.

    The rep said despite news releases of Apple having slowed production of IPAD 2's because of the crisis in japan....

    She said that won't begin to happen for another month, between now and then Apple plans on making and shipping thousands of IPAD 2's.

    So i just ordered it from them and now at least i can check the status of my order from day to day.

    Probably a good move. I stopped in at Best Buy on my lunch break today and picked up a poly cover. I can stare at it while i await my iPad2 which is now a pile of parts somewhere in China (let's hope) to be delivered in like a month or so.

    anyway, the local BestBuy stopped taking the $100 reservations because they had already taken more reservations than they realistically expected to receive units for quite some time to come.

    Maybe i can get my old Handspring Visor working and paint an Apple logo on the back :D

    Direct quote from a Best Buy employee to me yesterday:

    "Apple only sends us 6 iPads at a time. We currently have a waiting list of over 150 people in our store, alone."

    So yeah, don't order from them or expect them to deliver any time son.

    So is it safe to guess we can expect our iPad 2's before the quoted 4-5 week deliver time on the apple website?

    why did you remove the BB preorder? Why not just keep it there, that way if it came in sooner than you are able to get one. I preordered one from BB last Wednesday, picked up one on Target Friday, and got a call today that my preorder was in.

    I bought a 64gb wifi white from Target, and I reserved a 32 gb wifi white from BB.

    wait, why would you say that?? did i miss something? i certainly hope it's true. I wasn't able to order it until last saturday bc i hadn't received my income taxes yet :( 4-5 weeks will feel like an eternity. Please tell me you have reason to expect shipments sooner...
