    So, when Apple does finally let us know what day the 3G is going to be available, how and when will that go down? (as in time of day)

    I want to know what time of each day I should be checking this forum and/or Apple's site to see the announcement, so I can then quickly make my in-store pickup reservation.

    What time does Apple do this? Will be with a lot of fanfare like the initial announcement, or do you expect a simple announcement on their web site?

    Thanks!

    This will keep me from checking every hour or so every day! :)

    It will most likely be random.

    Probably a week before, or they just may announce it the same day.

    I'm shooting for April 24th. (Which is a saturday)

    2 more weeks should do it.:D

    I'm also waiting for a 16GB + 3G iPad:)

    9:41 or 9:42, whatever it takes??



    Yeah, I was hoping the answer would be, "Apple does this at 10 am PST" or something along those lines.

    I guess I'll just keeping checking every hour or so when I have a spare second to ping Apple.com and this forum. :D

    Or on second thought they will be available when the store opens at 10am.

    10:50am is yet another credible and feasible time...

    Oh I sure hope not! I'm ok with it being delayed by a week or two, but not that much!

    When I ordered my WiFi iPad, it was shipped around noon to my house.

    My guess is that they won't announce it and people will just see their cards charged. Then a day or so later Apple will say that they are shipping. That's what happened with previous devices that had no set release date.
