    I ordered my iPad 2 late because didn't have the money at the time of its launch--so my original estimated date of arrival was April 28th. After checking my account today it has been moved to April 23rd. I know that it's not a HUGE improvement, but it's better than nothing. Has anyone else had this happen? :)

    My guess? This may be indicative that Apple has been able to find new suppliers for its production chain (outside Japan) and that we'll see more units in a shorter period of time than we thought. If anything, the shipment date will continue to be shortened. (or maybe i'm just overly optimistic) Thoughts?

    cheers

    Engraved?

    Is yours engraved? I cancelled my order from a reseller and ordered from Apple on the 21. I had a ETA of 28, then it moved to the 26, but mine is engraved. That may be why you moved up ahead of me. I'm hoping it moves up another week. What about you?

    The rumor is April 21 is the ship date for most.

    According to peeps on the apple forums, apple stopped ipad2 production lines to sort out the screen leakage. Apple engineers sent to the plant in china. It seems everyone with an online order, and everyone with a scheduled replacement has an eta ship date of 21 April or later.

    i ordered online a couple days ago, and they've given me a apr15 shipment date with a delivery of apr26. i'm kinda hopeful of a date earlier than that.

    but, i'd be happy for a slightly later shipment date if it meant a more better construct.

    Yes mine is engraved with my initials. I'm not sure what, if any effect this has on shipment date. Of course my smartcover shipped almost immediately--the next four weeks are going to be brutal, lol. I've tried to forget about it (and avoid these forums) but...it's an iPad 2, lol

    I haven't been to an apple store since launch. Does apple have stores filled with new display iPads? if they are...that seems like a waste IMHO

    That would be great. I would love NOT TO HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH SCREEN LEAKAGE. that's ONE AND ONLY ONE PRO to waiting a month. (just saw another guy with one, so jealous cuz he just waited an hour at BB on launch day)

    Not fair! But it's k.

    I think engraving delays it like 2 days. I know typically when you buy like a iPod or some. Itll be like 2-3 days ship for none and 3-5 with. Im not so worried about that. Engraving is the only reason I haven't walked forty five miles to a BB and slept there. But let's hang in there together. Three days til April then 21 days til the best day of 2011.

    what pissed me off is the fact i stayed up late to order at 1am exactly. wanted to get one of the first orders in. the shipment times were in the order of 3-4 weeks?

    eh? it's still 3-4 weeks days later. they've obviously not kept up their 'first come first serve' policy any more. wish i'd have known - i'd have stayed in bed.

    I am employed with a retailer group The Good Guys and one of our stores in the suburbs of. Brisbane is a full Apple reseller they have had no returns or complaints regard screen or any other issues from the large number that were sold on release. You have to remember Apple according to reports is only manufacturing 2.5 million ipads a month and based on reports did not start ipsd2 production until late Jan demand is greater than supply and any dates shown on line and stores are estimates. The other factor is colors and models. Some models will sell faster than others and that will effect delivery times. Hope this helps.
