Yes, my delivery was dellivered on the date shown on the apple site. It takes a while to get through customs in Alaska and the next point in the contiguous US, mine was in Nashville.

Looks like you're screw either way you order it, I'm on day 12 of waiting after ordering it in-store... they are stockpiling for international release, so it figures.

Same story... I ordered the afternoon of 5/10 and it also shipped today from China and has a 5/25 estimated delivery date to California. Looks like we're all in the same boat so to speak.

Thanks guyes, I'm not going to get my hopes up on receiving it early (even though I REALLY want it)


....And to top it off as I'm typing this post one of my customers comes in with an iPad and made me want it even more.... :(

Ok I have another question.... ( By the way THANK YOU for all the help you guy's have given)

This is just my luck, I went to FedEx to see where in the world my iPad is and this message appeared...

"As of Wednesday, May 19, 2010
Due to the unstable political conditions in Bangkok and the rest of Thailand, FedEx Express® has suspended pickup and delivery service throughout the country until further notice. These conditions remain very fluid and we will continue to closely monitor all changes. Additional information will be posted on fedex.com as it becomes available."


My iPad left Shenzhen, Cn today, does anyone know if it will be going through Bangkok??

My package went from Sezhen China to Lantau Island Hong Kong on the 18th. I just got off the phone with Fedex and they say it moved to Taiwan within the last hour. They say unless there's a hold up it should be here at stated on Friday. They did not say it's deliver would or would not be affected by the events in Thailand. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be here this time two days from now!
