Apple has just updated its online store with a shipping date for the 3G-equipped variants of its iPad. As you can see, all varieties of the hallowed Apple tablet should be out and about by May 7th -- meaning that some deliveries could sneak out even earlier -- and you can expect AT&T will be ready and waiting for you to activate that $30 a month unlimited data plan. Just for the European record, that means the iPad will be out in full force for American consumers three days ahead of the announcement of specific international availability. Ah well, at least that gives the UK and others hope that they might see the 3G and WiFi-only slates coming out at the same time, which should be somewhere around the end of May.

This is probably for all new orders going forward. My order still says "Late April". I guess we will know for sure when someone preorders today at some point.

Someone please place an order and let us know what the date you get when you order now is -- I want to order but I am going to be away for 5 days and fear it would come then ....

Any iPad ordered today will ship by May 7th, and I think it is safe to say, it would not ship much sooner. If they ship it and the person is not there to sign for it, they will leave a notice to call the local shipper and arrange pickup or deleivery.

The issue I see, is that they only promise to ship in April. If so, then a May 1 delivery is very possible until we get concrete info.

I got the "late April" E-mail too - ordered on 3/12. Given that the 23rd is "Earth Day", and I wouldn't count the iPad as "green", I'm betting on shipments starting on the 27th, to arrive by the 30th - ie: late April. Also note that my CC has not been hit for the iPad - all of the accessories, yes, but not the iPad.
