    Just checked the UK site and ship time has switched from Feb to 3-4 weeks.
    was wondering, is it worth ordering it or will it be in retail stores faster?
    I'm in manchester, we have 3 apple stores, wondering if it'll get to one of those faster than online?

    I wonder if they have actually begun shipping maybe USA first, Europe to follow ? Hence we've still got 3 weeks...

    So, Apple began shipping three weeks from now? I think somebody at Apple is having trouble with their verb tenses!

    I know, but if the people who are receiving this notice pre-ordered, then who's getting the product being shipped now?

    Amazon doesn't even have a listing for the new Airport Base Station, so it can't even be preordered from them for some reason.

    so is this basestation supposed to fix the issue with the base station getting knocked offline by cell phones? When you guys get them, let me know if you have any problems with it before I get one.

    We had to pull some apple airports out of some high school's because the kids would have cell phones that when they would ring the airport would go offline and need to be restarted. Not sure if it was a common problem, but we had that problem in more than one school so we replaced them with Extreme Access Points.

    Well it looks like my suspicions were right.

    Mine is now showing as Shipped with an expected delivery date of 13th Feburary ? To get from UK to Ireland :rolleyes: With UPS I can believe it.
