I ordered mines on the 14th of this month and Apple gave me this piece of information : Delivers: Apr 22 - Apr 28 <---is this accurate? how long did it took you to receive your order? (after the release date or something like that?) haha sorry, a bit anxious to get my hands on this thing. I have an iPod Touch 1st gen, and iPhone 3GS, but I couldn't resist the shiny new iPad x)

Is that the delay on the WiFi?

Everyone that ordered theirs on day one had to wait a month.

I ordered mine on the late on the 12th and it said will ship in 5-7 business days and deliver on the 20th-26th. it's been 4 business days (saturday-sunday dont count) so I expect the "Not Yet Shipped" status to change Monday. Your's should ship on wednesday and hopefully you should get it by saturday. I have ordered macbooks and ipods straight from apple in the past and that is the way the 5-7 day deal usually works, they ship it in 5 and you get your package about 2 days later. dont worry i'm drooling as well :)

Apple store is an estimate only Once you place the order that date will be closer Please remember all ipads are built in china so delays can happen All will be fine as they say go for a long walk do what ever to pass the time before the baby arrives

Mine has said prepared for shipment for a day now. My card has been charged but no tracking number yet. My estimated delivery was between today and the 26th. It's gonna have trouble making that deadline if they don't ship it today.

Not me. Still says prepared for shipment. I really thought that I would get a shipment notification today, but no such luck. If it doesn't ship early tomorrow I won't see it till Monday. FedEx doesn't do Saturday deliveries here. I ordered on the 12th at 8:49PM eastern.
