I ordered both a dock and case the first day they were available and yet both are now "prepared for shipment". This means they won't be here for at least another 5 days (2 weekend then whatever transit time). Seems odd that they couldn't have shipped these earlier in the week so you had them in time for the iPad. It's not like having the case and dock in advance would have been a big deal for Apple...and it's obvious they have some quantity because the Apple Stores will have them by tomorrow for in store as well as the reviewers having them for weeks. Sometimes Apple's decisions just confuse me.
