    It's starting to get ridiculous that at this point we don't even have a date? What is the point of not at least giving us a date? Late April could be today or any other day in the next 2 weeks. Why not just say April 30th? (or whateveR)

    You've gone <insert your age here> years without an iPad. You can wait a few more days/weeks.

    What part of late April don't you understand?

    Late April would not include today, that is what we like to call Mid-April. During the week of the 25th is when late April begins. If they meant today or after they would have said something like: second half of April.

    You act like you have been waiting an eternity, chill out. There are enough of these threads already.

    Late April means any day from now until April 30 ;)

    Besides, I'm really happy that all the wifi guys and gals are working through workflow issues, app testing, etc.

    Hopefully by the time the 3G's ship the devs will be hard at work polishing up apps, squashing bugs, etc...

    I am willing to bet they just put a hold on the fuinds that will go away in a few days. Mine was ordered the first day you could along with my WiFi and the 3G unit does not show shipping and nor does yours!:eek:

    End of the month if in the USA and you ordered early. They may not have enough to fill all the USA orders if you are just now ordering.

    The EU people are SOL:p

    It would be nice to get a ship date, but at least in the latest press release they said they would deliver the 3g iPads by the end of April. I assume that means they'll ship within the next 10 days or so. The other thing is that it's pretty obvious Apple is having problems keeping up with demand, so they might not know yet specifically what day they'll be able to ship the first batch. I imagine they have it narrowed down to within a few days (ie., Late April), but they haven't set a specific date yet. Having worked in manufacturing, I know how difficult nailing down these specific dates for this kind of shipment can be.

    Don't be impatient. It isn't like you already had one and are waiting for its replacement.

    I'm guessing these won't be in stores until after the 15 day return window for Apple. Just a thought.

    I was doing OK with waiting for my 3G, but this weekend I got a chance to play with a friends Wifi and must say I got a bit jealous. Now I check MacRumors a couple of time a day waiting for news of a 3G release date. Anticipation is starting to drive me nuts!!! On top of that Apple shipped me the case last week and it's sitting all alone on my desk :( ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!

    I bet some of this delay is also att's fault. They're probably getting all the marketing for their stores together along with fortifying their systems for the few hundreds of thousands of people that are about to suck tons of bandwidth from their systems.

    At least the people in america can get wifi ones just now. The rest of the world cant even get them so stop being so greedy. No wonder americans always get called greedy ¬_¬

    It IS like that for me! I bought the wifi version and liked it so much that I returned it a day later knowing for sure I wanted the 3G connectivity. When I saw how much I liked it, I knew I'd have uses out and about where wifi is not an option. So, YES, I have had one before and this wait is maddening! ;)


    PS. I only kept it a day because I figured that if I used it for a week or so, my chances of getting the restocking fee would be low.
