It's early on the early :D. Now I need to figure out if I can actually make it to the pickup location and get back to work all during my lunch break... 11 minutes there (best estimate).... :( I'll have to wait a little longer. Stupid digital time-card system.

My iPad 2 will arrive TODAY...ordered it from store first day (ordered by 1:00 pm not knowing about super early orders). An email from Apple said 21st arrival.

Got an email on 4/1 saying item was shipped. Followed tracking number. Item shows it will deliver by 1:30 April 7.

Looked this morning and saw ITEM OUT FOR DELIVERY...April 5. HOORAY!!!!

I have tried over and over to get one. Ran to Best Buy and got there 2 minutes after they handed out last ticket. Ran to Wal-Mart, then Target ... Just missed in all this stores. Tried every day for weeks with idea that I could cancel the Apple order, but gave up. Then began fretting about issue of any parts coming from Japan might delay the order.

Really planned to wait until April 21. What a pleasant surprise!

My order from Apple Canada was supposd to be shipped on April 15 and I just received an email that it has just shipped. Yahoo! It's supposed to arrive on the 8th, but I won't hold my breath since my cover took 8 days to arrive (I live far away from any major cities - in fact, the order arrived in Canada in 2 days, travelled half the country in 1 day, then sat for 5 days before getting to me).

64GB Black WiFi

Congrats! An ETA of Apr. 8 is two weeks earlier than originally reported. When did you order yours? I made my online order as soon as the website allowed in the early morning hours (4 am) of March 25th. Just wondering how Apple is prioritizing the shipments. I still show a shipping date of Apr. 15 and delivery on Apr. 20 on a White 64GB WiFi.

That's a lot of territory to cover in 5 days...never would have believed it!

Came fully charged, but requires a system update that takes an hour!

Cover snaps right on....I keep wanting to stick my head under the cover as it closes to make sure it is turning iPad off. LOL
Love cover except back exposed...don't like that.

Anyway, this sequence is exactly the same as the cover sent about a week ago. At last...the cover has something to cover!!! 

I ordered mine as soon as soon as the web site allowed as well - 1:17 am is what my notice says. I hope your time moves up soon. FedEx is now giving me a delivery date of Monday.

My ship date has stayed the same, April 20th, but the delivery date has slipped by 2 days from the 23rd to the 25th... I wonder why that happened?

That's a staging area for a lot of the relief effort in Japan. It's apple's fault your ipad is stuck there. They chose to ship low priority INTL.. But you can't really fault anyone since this wouldn't normally have been an issue if not for the disaster.
