    Preordered today, and it will not be with me before April 10 :(

    Ps: I live in London, not in An oasis in the middle of the Sahara

    My latest update from FedEx says my iPad 3 is leaving Tennessee which is usually only 2 days from my home in Louisiana. Will FedEx hold it until Friday or will I get it sooner?

    If the launch is the same as for previous launches, the iPads will be held at your local center for delivery on Friday. Apple will have ensured the shippers don't deliver early cause they want everyone to get the iPads on release day, not early.

    Just keep your fingers crossed it'll be an early morning delivery - but I'd be shocked if the shippers overruled Apple and delivered any earlier than Friday.

    :(
    Mine still says order being processed.... (it has not been shipped yet....)

    However it still says "Delivers on March 16 via Next Day Shipping"


    I placed my order at around 3:30PM on March 7th.

    I got my order in on Wednesday (the 7th?) at 3:10 MST and my order says preparing for shipment.. I am in Northern Alberta so I believe it will get here Monday the 19th.... could be surprised since a city 3 hours away WILL have them on the 16th

    I'm in rural north-central Oregon, about 3 hours east of Portland. I placed my order online at 2:30pm Wednesday. Received notification yesterday (Saturday) morning at 10:16am that it shipped via FedEx and "delivers Friday March 16". It's midnight heading into Sunday morning and I checked on the tracking/shipping status at FedEx.com. That shows FedEx picked up the iPad in Ontario, CA (about an hour east of Los Angeles) at 9:30am yesterday but gives no delivery date. However, the service type is shown as "Priority Overnight". Never have seen that before with an Apple order, so I will call FedEx in the morning to find out what that's all about. Maybe they overnight it to Portland, where it'll sit in a bin until Thursday or Friday?
