Apple doesn't deliver these early...they did not deliver early with the iPhone launch.Apple might start delivering these like they did with one of the iPhone launch
Delivering early is good.
Hopefully iPad available in different retail channels also on Friday (like best buy, Apple retail stores, ATT, Verizon and so on)
I thought Apple did that to avoid the over load on activations?Apple doesn't deliver these early...they did not deliver early with the iPhone launch.
Yeah, Apple wants to get the iPad in customers' hands by Friday. UPS and Fedex are no stranger to this though. Those two companies, along with USPS (if you're in the States) share the load of all the holiday shipping that goes on from like...November-December. I'm pretty sure the deadlines they have right before Christmas Eve/Day are more intense than an Apple launch.well, i am ok with this early delivery.
If the pre-orders are record breaking, then If I am apple I want to get this to ALL the customer by Friday morning (whoever ordered pre-order) so no one is disappointed
I am guessing this year also, there will be plenty of stock in the stores around.

Delivery date changed to the 16th sometime overnight. Oh well, it was fun while it lastedIt doesn't know what's being delivered yet. It just knows it's getting a package to be sent overnight and normally that means next day. When your package is picked up, you're delivery date will be the 16th like the rest of us.
