Believe it or not I have the exact same problem, with the exact same shipping/tracking info. Apple e-mail said delivered by the 8th and FedEx shipping said by this morning (9th) by 10:30 AM. Was looking good when it shipped on the 6th but after arriving in Lantau Island HK, it was in transit from there, and then it said it was back there again and hasn't changed for a few days... so impatient haha

I too and seeing the same thing. Received shipment notification on the 5th -- still waiting. FedEx tracking page still shows the iPad at the local FedEx facility in Lantau.

Unbelievable. I've always had issues like this with FedEx. They truly, honestly suck, in my opinion.

Yeah, your iPads are probably chillin' in HK (with the storm and all) and most likely sampling the excellent Dimsum too...yummy! :D

Kidding aside, I hope you get your toys soon.

Perhaps Apple has finally run out of iPads....

We know they've had production volume issues from day 1 due to unexpacted demand

Clearly our iPads have already been manufactured if we've received notifications they've shipped.

I know :) I was just trying to stir the paranoia pot a little.

Maybe they've discovered a production fault in the most recent run because they've increased production beyond capacity. Perhaps the last round of shipments have been recalled ... (STIR STIR STIR the pot)

I'm pretty sure FedEx just sucks :).

Once my iPad left Shenzhen, it arrived pretty quickly. Sometimes the updating is a little slower but it actually is in transit. LOL @ stirring the pot. When I was waiting for mine to arrive in Canada, I was pretty anxious too. Checked several times a day to see where my new prized possession was. It was well over a year, since I first heard of their development and knew I wanted one, so a few weeks of yearning after pre-ordering to feel it actually in my hands was relatively short.

ok got it figured out, there is a special section in fedex that handles this direct shipment stuff. it got delayed in HK for one day she said. but she also said that it was in the usa but in customs...so it should take a little while there and then ship out tomorrow or friday. friday the latest. and for some unknown reason the website isnt being informed of all the changes. hope this helps!

Same Here

Same shipping date, June 6th. Delivery date June 9th, 10:30. Now no delivery date. Has anyone asked FedEx what's up? You don't think the island has sunk with all the IPADs they have on it now? :confused:

Yes. Apparently the shipments left Hong Kong, went to Taiwan, and left Taiwan where they'll land in Anchorage, Alaska.

It will need to clear customs -- so I reckon our shipments are in customs as of current.
