I got the confirmation email on March 7 around 1:00 PM Pacific Time, However the order status has been showing "preparing for shipment" for about one week. It supposed to deliver on this Friday but I hasn't got any shipping notification; I called Apple today and they said it will be delivered on time still.
Does anybody have the same problem ?

This isn't a problem at all. Relax, your iPad will be delivered on Friday as promised. Apple has them all strategically located across the country ready for overnight delivery tomorrow. Mine is in Middletown, PA.

They did the same thing with the iPhone 4S and they were delivered as promised.

And then take a look at this thread with over 3,000 posts regarding this.

Don't worry, I'm on the same boat as you. I called Apple earlier today as well and they said the same thing as they said to you. They told me that most iPad's that weren't engraved are already in the U.S. However I do have one question, Apple CS did state that my iPad is located in Memphis TN, not Nashville. Is anybody else's there as well?

They can get it anywhere in the country in about 4 hours. Given that, they could ship it early the morning (1 or 2 am local time) and still have it at the Fed Ex hub ready for delivery to your house tomorrow, with no problem.

This happened to be with the iPhone 4. I had no shipment update, and then the day it was supposed to be delivered the tracking page changed to show it flying from Tennessee to NY at 3am. I received it at my door at 11 am that day.

Don't sweat it. We live in a day and age when things can be shipped quickly and efficiently. It boggles our minds and gives us grief sometimes.
