    Shipping estimates for new online orders of all iPad 2 models have improved to 2-3 weeks today, down from earlier 3-4 weeks. The new shipping estimates appear to apply in all countries where the iPad 2 is currently shipping.

    With Apple releasing its first television commercial for the iPad 2 over the weekend and shipping estimates now improving, it appears that the company is confident enough in its ability to meet demand that it can begin more high-profile marketing campaigns to appeal to a broad base of consumers beyond the early adopters that have so far been soaking up supplies as quickly as they can be replenished.

    Now if only the 2 iPad2's that I ordered for my company would have their shipping time bumped up , since I ordered on the 12th of March and still show a ship date of April 23rd.

    Does anyone know the current stock situation in the London Apple Stores? Do they have Ipads for people who just walk into the store?

    Exactly!! Why hasn't my ship date moved up at all?? If I ordered one today it would say an earlier ship date than the one I ordered 3 weeks ago :confused:

    Not sure why your shipping date is so late, I ordered on the 13th and my original ship date was 4/11, it actually shipped 4/1, its in Alaska.

    In London you have to reserve an iPad between 9-10pm for collection next day. Good luck with that - I had three browsers open and yet no dice within 30 seconds of 9pm!

    Additionally, the shipping on the UK Apple Store is still 3-4 weeks as of now.

    Yeah, my ship date hasn't budged. Still all the way out at April 25th. Disappointing. I started a new job that requires me to be on the train about 2 1/2 hours a day and the iPad 2 came out almost at the same exact time that I started my job. I really need this thing to come in--my iPhone 4 is not cutting it as an e reader anymore and some Civilization Revolution for iPad would sure make those train rides shorter.

    My ship date just got moved BACK instead of FORWARD ! ! !

    IPAD WI-FI 3G 32GB BLACK ATT
    Ships: Apr 25
    Delivers: May 3

    Delivery WAS the 29th ! I ordered the 22nd of March.

    Smart cover will be here the 22nd though. That was only a 4 week wait.

    I called apple, they aren't sure why and can't tell me if I cancel my order if it'll ship faster, nor can they tell me why I was bumped back a week...

    Thanks Apple.. sigh

    I went to a local store today and they had tons of iPad 2s; they even had four demonstration models, which kind of surprised me. I thought that they'd be hard to get, which clearly is not the case, at least not around here.

    And I must say, I was really surprised about how thin it is, it's definitely a huge improvement over the first one.

    I am curious what iPads are popular and which ones are not. Do people like the White one or the Black one? 64 GB or 16 GB? Wi-Fi or 3G? It is probably too early to tell since people will buy any that is available from Apple's estimate of demand.
