    just spoke to Apple, they reckon a starting delivery of at least 1-2 weeks if ordered online at 1am, and add up to another 4 days or so on top of that if engraving is required.

    they also said that Apple aim to turn orders around within 24 hours. it's then the delivery rigmarole that takes the time, meaning that if you plan on ordering at 1am online, then getting lucky and buying in a store tomorrow, then cancelling your order you might have missed the shipment cut off time.

    i really hope the queuing wont start too early tomorrow.
    Sales guy from my local apple store said "just turn up at 5pm, it'll be fine!"
    slightly naive there i mumbled.

    But I will order online also. If it's shipped before I cancel it (doubtful), i'll just send it back.

    i think i'll just order online tonight and put up with the waiting. i really relish the thought of a wait less and less the more i consider it.

    infact, i'm just about to go walk my dogs to consider it further.

    Well, alöl the info i get in a well visit germany forum is freaked out madness.

    -some peolpe say 3rd merchants hold IPad2s back for them
    -other people say that that same merchant group in their city dont make reservations.
    -some people say they got told there will be no 3G models in the next 3 weeks.
    -some people say that the online order in Australia is 2-3 weeks right from the start.
    -some people post theit sjipment update that their white wifi Ipad2 is ready for shipment and will arrive in 3-5 days

    u can say theres almost every possible shipment possibility on the way.

    Tells me that no one knoes nothing, but gathering all those messages up it tells me that there a good number of IPads in Germany on local apple stores and few at other merchants.

    Not sure about the total number, not even a guess, i think when it comes to online order, graving also make it take longer.

    I'm getting the same thing

    Error after error. I sometimes get as far as confirming payment, but get 'ipad blocked' by another error message.

    We've broken apple
