    I don't normally start threads like this, but I just wanted to let anyone who has ordered or may be ordering an iPad, that apple has shipped mine earlier than expected.
    I ordered mine on May 26th with a ship date of June 10th and a delivery on June 15th. My status now says shipped, with a delivery on the 8th. Granted, I order the wifi version so this may not have an impact on 3g orders but maybe things are picking up and apple is processing orders faster.
    I apologize if this has been covered.

    Thanks! I ordered a 64GB WiFi model last night and it is supposed to arrive June 24th. I hope I get as lucky as you and it ships sooner!

    Also, the Apple case and camera kit aren't supposed to arrive until July 9th!?! I guess I better be careful with it until the case arrives weeks later.

    I hope you get lucky too. Waiting sucks. I'm in the process of ordering a case now. I wasn't expecting it to come this soon. It caught me off guard but in a good way.

    I placed an order at the apple store last Monday. They said it would be about two to three weeks. Got an qemail on sat saying it was in. How cool is that.

    I ordered a 64GB 3G last night, but was not given a ship date or estimated arrival, just "Ships: June".
    I wonder when they will give me dates. Agreed, the waiting part sucks.

    i got a ship and delivery date as soon as I ordered. not really sure why you didn't unless they are updating their stock and waiting to give you a more accurate ship date.

    Ordered mine on May 30th? Estimated ship date of June 15th, delivery on 18th.

    Wifi 64gb.

    No word on ship date. Not sure which case to get.

    Did any of you purchase when the shipping was June either in UK or international. I know the States says 7-10 days, so ship dates are estimated.
    However with this June ship date there was no estimate :(
    I could cancel and re-order lol for the 7-10 business days.

    I ordered mine on May 27th, instantly got an estimated shipping date of June 11th and an arrival of June 16th. Yesterday morning I noticed that it had changed to Ready for Shipment. I wasn't expecting it to ship until at least Monday but I got an email saying it shipped. I asked the FedEx guy that delivers around my area and he said that it could be here on Tuesday rather than the estimated Wednesday the 9th as the website says. Mine is currently at the FedEx facility in Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

    The iPad comes all wrapped in plastic, so with that... you are okay from some rain water (and basic use), but it's definitely not long term based on the plastic they use. Be careful!

    Looks like you and I are in the same boat. Mine is at Lantau as well. I usually receive orders a day or two earlier than posted so maybe this will be true for this order as well.

    I doubt that it'll be here tomorrow, probably Tuesday at the earliest.

    Update: Yes! it's on the truck, coming today!

    Jun 6, 2010 5:43 AM Arrived at FedEx location MEMPHIS, TN


    Mine was ordered online from apple store may 22, they promised shipment by june 8 and delivery by june 11. But it's coming sooner, estimated delivery is june 9th. I have sometimes had things show up just one day after they hit Memphis, so who knows. I am psyched even though I'm still wondering if I will be able to get a data plan after an AT&T guy said I have to LIVE in an AT&T coverage area. Not the case for my AT&T-based cell phones, I told him. He said yeah but you're a long time customer and now we changed our policy, and your account is flagged for non-coverage area zip code so you would not be able to add a line now. Hmm. Time to fly into a rage? Well, time will tell... Anyway the device is winging its way here in a big hurry:

    My shipping confirmation screen is letter for letter the same as yours. Everything to the very minute!

    Did you get the 16gb 3G?

    No, I got the 32GB 3G. It looks like a bunch of ours are on the same truck/plane. I still haven't received any new updates other than that it departed from Memphis.

    Mine's been like this for a few days. I'm sure it's in Alaska by now. Anyone else have their look exactly like mine?

    EDIT: Just called FedEx (1.800.GoFedEx) and tracked via that, apparently mine is on route to my town and delivery is as stated in the image below.

    Mine looks like yours to the letter. I just checked the site and it still says its in Hong Kong. I guess the online sight isn't very accurate.

    My status changed to shipping with a tracking number on Friday with a ship date of Saturday. It had all the Hong Kong and China stuff. Then arrived in Memphis over the weekend and was at my door at 8:37am Yesterday (Monday) morning.

    I was a bit shocked and just a little giddy.

    Was worried about the unlimited plan not being there, but it was (along with the other two options). And it was actually the default selection. I would have thought they would have made 2gb the default selection to "catch" a few people.

    Very happy now. Yours will arrive shortly.

    64gb 3g.

    Ordered a 32 GB 3G on Sat and it's expected to ship on June 18th with Deliver June 24th... must have been the last minute rush before June 7th.

    I love how the Apple website still says 7 - 10 days though.

    OMG. I have the same here, it's supposed to be delivered tomorrow. The problem is, im in Mexico so i send it to San Pablo, CA, because my sister is gonna come in june 10th, so it's very urgent to be delivered by tomorrow.

    this is frustrating, if FedEx fails, im not gonna see mi iPad till August :(

    So u called FedEx? I guess they have trouble with the web updates but in the Yahoo site, you can track too and it says more information http://smallbusiness.yahoo.com/r-packageTracker-s-fedex

    I ordered my iPad in May 26th, the same information of fireman13 and still.... no iPad, and the statuses well... i wanna cry :(

    I fill your pain but I think you should be good for delivery tomorrow. I've seen this before with fed-ex but they are good for being on time. I should say I've never had a problem with them but I'm sure some have.

    You think? I hope so man, i really do.
    I remember a year ago, similar thing happened when I ordered my MacBook Pro, but now it seems more complicated...

    I was very happy, and I expected that in the FedEx status could change to Alaska or something today, but it didn't happened.

    Thank you.
