I ordered online last night, within 5 minutes of the store offering. Got a delivery date of march 18-25 for my iPad2. Woke up and heard a report through Bloomberg that these shipping times may be legitimate, due to supply and shipping constraints. That Apple didn't want shipping to be the best way to get one this time, and instead wants people at stores. And the fact that there is so much supply going to Walmarts, Targets, BB, Verizon, and At&t means that it will be slower for shipping. On the off chance that it could be a week or more, I just canceled my order this morning. I had not been charged yet and only got the confirmation email, by the time stamp, at 6am Mountain. So I think it's clearer to me know what analysts have been saying...that supply may be limited a bit (as we were hearing in the weeks leading up to the launch), but also that Apple is putting their best supply into the hands of people at storefront locations. Even if I wait until Monday or Tuesday and then just do a reservation or walk in there's a better chance of getting something that I don't have to wait a full week or two and watch shipping on. So Apple set these rules, and I'll play by them. I'm just going to wait a day or two so I don't have to wait in line. But that's better than a week or more.
