Went to the Apple store to play with the iPad, and asked about the 3G version. Apparently it will be released around April 20-30. (25-ish); and was also told that it would be the same with the Wi-Fi version; getting it the same day its released. I'm guessing it will be "prepared for shipping" on the 19th. (One of my dreams I had years ago said "it will happen on the 19th.") So, lets just wait and see. I also picked up a pack of three of iTunes gift cards. I'll buying Pages and Keynote, but not Numbers yet; as I have another iTunes GC coming in. Also, purchasing something AT the Apple store was something else. Scanning the items up via their iPhones/iPod Touches. At first, it threw me off, VERY WEIRD. Not to mention the "guessing game."
