Took a little bit to get through but got my order in around 4:45 this afternoon. Got my confirmation and it says I should receive it sometime between Wendsday the 14th to Friday the 16th. When I ordered I asked if it would be shipped the 16th and he told me no. Said I will GET it by the 16th. Hope he is right. My husband is getting my ipad2.

Well I ordered one of the smart covers with my iPad since my old one is, well, old. Anyway, that is what could come as early as 14th. The iPad itself will come on the 16th. just wanted to clarify because I read it different and posted it wrong here originally.

It looks like I just made it. They are already backordering the white models and the blacks should be soon to follow. I expect that by tonight, no one will be able to order one for March 16 delivery.

IMHO - Get the largest you can afford. You'll be surprised how quickly 1080P video will eat up the HDD.

iPad WiFi+Verizon 4G LTE 64GB Black

Ordered it yesterday afternoon. No shipping notice yet, but I presume that is because I didn't engrave it. The order status page says "Delivers March 16", so fingers crossed.

For the price difference, $100, chose iPad 3 for the higher resolution screen.
If you're not going to store a lot of video and books, 16G will probably do. Consider 32 however since your habits may change once you get totally hooked on the device. ;)

I just preordered a 64 gig white. My beloved Ipad 2 has 16 gigs, which seemed enormous last June when I bought it. Now I have to keep moving large items like magazines and videos off to make space. Music takes up a lot of space also but I keep most of that on my Ipod. Anyway, space is how I justified upgrading.

Ordered a 64gb white AT&T last night, got the confirmation email shortly thereafter, now in the usual processing items limbo. Same thing happened last year when I ordered my 64gb black AT&T but I think they might be better prepared this year.

One thing wrong with 4g many parts of the country (UNITED STATES) do not have 4g coverage.

Sent from my IPAD 1st generation. WIFI only. 64GB

Yeah I know. AT&T 4G is really strong in my area (DC) in my experience and I don't travel much. I've been very frustrated at times with 3G so I'm hoping this will be better.
