Great, but couldn't you have added this to the other 10 threads stating the exact same thing?

But his iPad shipped so why wouldn't he want his own thread?!

I'm kidding, these need to be merged, really.

Only saw the pre-order one with 1500 responses, after 1500 I think it's okay to start a new thread for orders that have shipped.

Give the poster a break. We often see the preorder post, then the prepared for shipment post and finally the most important shipped post...

No, the "mine arrived this morning" would be the most important one.

OP, I'm happy for you. But barring an unusual shipping flub, no matter what it says, you'll get it on the 16th with all the rest of the preorders and AFTER the ones who camp out and buy at an Apple store that morning.

My iPad I ordered on the 7th was shipped according to the email I got this morning. The FedEx # doesn't work yet though for me, btw. And I'm not expecting to receive it early or anything - just nice to know it's being processed to arrive on time.

The one I ordered on the 8th (yesterday) did not ... which is expected. Yay!

I got email it shipped also. I had ordered a av adapter as well and I have tracking info for that, but for the iPad, while I have a Fed-ex tracking number, when I look it up, nothing. Would they send these out as 2 seperate deliveries?

so many immature posters on this forum. OMG MY THING SHIPPED
You might as well get over it as this is an exciting time for the iPad forum and you have not seen anything yet. Just wait till next Wednesday through Friday. People will be freaking out. Just try to relax and if a post upsets you, move on to another.

Email from Apple that is has shipped via FedEx with delivery on the 16th
Do you have any tracking info on yours? I got the same info and while it has tracking info for the A/V adapter, it doesn't for the iPad. I can't imagine they would ship them seperately.

I read Steve Jobs book and still don't know how Apple can control shipping company's like Fed Ex and UPS.

Apple is basically using their centers as distribution facilities, forcing them to hold on to the product to be delivered on a certain date.

You wold think when it is shipped out, it gets delivered based on the type.

UPS will almost always hold things based on delivery dates. Apple isn't the only one this happens with.
