    Exact same thing on the FedEx page for both of the ones I ordered. Makes sense, although it's weird that some are coming from China and some are already in the States. :eek:

    After ordering at 7:30 pm eastern time on the 7th the apple on line store almost immediately charged and removed the $634. From my visa. I was very glad. The expected emails / receipt showed up and then this morning an email from them indicated " your item is on its way to you ". Wow. Great I thought , but the delivery date still indicates FedEx , march 16. I'm wondering if my feeling that it will show up sooner is that unreasonable. Are there members here thinking 3rd gen iPads will arrive at locations at different times. FedEx might cause some to arrive a bit later (17th) but is earlier than the 16th out of the realm of possibility ? Either way next week is going to feel like such a long wait. Tracking number brings me to the statement " no information for this delivery at this time bla bla. I'm thinking FedEx might be bogged down and will slowly release revised arrival estimates. Being way down here in the Keys it seems everything get done slower. I could be fishing and hear FedEx ring my doorbell an that's wright where the heck I'm gonna be.

    Nope, I don't think anyone will be receiving it early since Apple has held shipment back to be delivered exactly on launch date. Even if it arrives early, it will be sitting at your local Fedex/UPS facilities until the given delivery date (16th). My UPS tracking says my package has been shipped, still in China & will arrive on 16th by end of day.

    Hey Guys & Gals, first post here! I'm in Scotland, UK. I sold my White iPad 2 32gb WiFi about 4 weeks ago in prep for the new launch (been really missing her though!) I thought I'd chime in with my current order status: This time I pre-ordered a Black 64gb WiFi/4G @ approx. 08:00hrs on Thursday 8th. I noticed that my order status has updated overnight from 'Processing Items: Delivers on March 16' to 'Preparing for Shipment: Delivers on March 16'. Hope everything stays on-track for a launch day delivery on the 16th. Thanks for all the info on iPF, great community and I've picked up SO many tricks and tips - well done!!!

    So, everyone has to say "delivery on the 16th". Isn't THAT a given, as it's the first day of availability! You WON'T get it sooner!

    There was speculation that a few iPads may be delivered a day or two earlier. If I remember correctly, same thing happened with the iPad2........one can only hope, right!!!!!!

    Yes, mine has displayed the same thing as of Friday night. This means you can expect to be getting it , well ,as fast as FedEx can go from Nashville to your home town. I am located in the Fl Keys so I expect to see great progress in the next 24 hours. Monday morning should offer the final delivery info. Just about in your hands my friend.

    My order updated to shipped and lists it in Middletown, Pa, not too far from where I live. Looks like Friday will be a good day! I am scheduled to work from home on Friday but I might just request off for the day!
