Apple has starting shipping iPads for delivery. Those who placed their orders in on the first day have started receiving shipping notices from the Apple Store.

Unfortunately, the early ship date does not necessarily mean that customers will receive their iPads before April 3rd. In the past, Apple has coordinated with UPS to hold early deliveries until launch day. The first Wi-Fi only iPads are to be delivered on April 3rd, 2010. 3G models will arrive several weeks later.

Well, I guess this means those of us that ordered the WiFi + 3G must live in envy for awhile :)

I'm not going to be around on Sat. for Easter. I hope they reattempt delivery on Monday. The sorting facility is 45 minutes one way to pick up.

Hope there are no thieves... with all these Apple packages going out and people away visiting relatives. They would just have to sit in your yard pretending to tend the bushes or something.

It's getting real. Bring on 4/3. (UPS: 4/2 would be okay too! :))

according to info from Apple if your area doesn't have saturday delivery,you get it on the 5th. so i'm betting no Apr 2nd deliveries is in the deal with Apple and no way is UPS going to piss off that big a client

My guess is this will be a signature required delivery. UPS isn't going to leave this package on your stoop...

Ups?

I have had bad luck with UPS in the past, if I have a problem with them I have to drive an hour just to get help but yet with Fedex I only have to drive 5 minutes to get help.Plus I don't think UPS does Saturday delivery in my area but FedEx does.:mad:

Don't Believe Everything You Read

I ordered mine within the first 10 minutes they were available, and mine is still being help for shipping.

Don't believe everything you read -- I think some people are getting creative with e-mails and apple.com shipping notices :)

Mine hasn't even been prepared for shipment. I ordered on 3/20. :eek:

Oh well as long as it gets here on 4/3, which of course it will! ;)

Not exactly...

I know you wanted to protect your name and etc. by just masking portions of the PDF, but you know that people can still get your name and etc. off the PDF. I suggest that you take the PDF off the forum asap, JIM ;) We believe you that iPad are shipping.

You're wrong. My shipping notice just came through now too.

I ordered within about 30 minutes of their availability myself.
