    I've had an order in on J&R for almost three weeks now and it's still backordered. I called up B&H last night and they said it would take weeks, but I decided to go for it anyway (even though they charge your card immediately, unlike J&R).

    I was pretty shocked when the order status changed to "sent to warehouse" right after I called, and even more shocked so get a shipping notification less than 24 hours later!

    I guess this either means B&H is getting a lot of units from Apple, or that the shortage is over. Either way, you should definitely give them a shot if you're still waiting for a backorder.

    So, J&R sent out your order? Your subject line says B&H.

    I ordered a 32 gig wi-fi only black iPad 2 from J&R first thing in the morning of 3/26. It still hasn't shipped yet...

    My bad, I got the two confused :)

    I highly recommend you place an order with B&H, they seem to be shipping faster. You can always cancel.

    In a lot of places, the shortage is easing. Our local Apple store has iPads in stock most of the day and are getting more and more e ery day to sell the next.

    B&H are who I'm recommending (my initial posted mixed them up).
