    Hi,

    I'm in the UK and ordered an iPad this morning. It says it has been shipped to my address, about 6 hours after ordering one this morning.

    What are the chances of it turning up tomorrow?

    I just ordered one too. I'm in the US though. Can't wait for it to get here. :D

    Cheers Zcott :)

    I don't want to get my hopes up, but of course it would be great if arrived tomorrow! :) My reason for thinking tomorrow is that it's already been shipped and sent to my address...the tracking thing thats ETA 29th November, which is Monday, but it still could arrive tomorrow? Possibly?

    You could be lucky if you live near one of the larger hubs…keep fingers crossed!

    Does having an Apple store nearby count as a hub?

    No, they're shipped from a warehouse as opposed to from an Apple Store.

    Yeah Apple seem to ship really quickly from my experience! I wouldn't be surprised if it arrived tomorrow! I had a Macbook air delivered next day last year! [​IMG]

    Just checked my Tracking...

    "Current Delivery Status: Available for Final Delivery to Customer - 27 Nov 2010

    Historic Event - Out for Delivery - 27 Nov 2010"

    This means it's coming today - right?

    I got a email at 3am saying my iPad case has been shipped, ordered yesterday of course. Doubt it will come on a Saturday :S

    But it wouldn't say out for delivery if it wasn't going to arrive at some point today? :) It's not like today is a Sunday.

    Will do adztaylor - can't wait!

    Sounds like it to me. Does it actually say 'Historic Event' or is that you bigging it up? ;)

    Who's your delivery co and whereabouts in the UK are you? Snow troubles?

    Haha! No, honestly, it does say "Historic Event"!

    Delivery company is TNT, and I'm in the West Midlands. Today was our first little sprinkle of snow, but it's melting fast, no disruption to roads etc.

    In that case, I advise camping by your front door with a flask of something hot. :)

    Dude, the iPad 2 will be out soon, you should have waited!

    ...

    Just kidding, I bought my iPad a few weeks ago and think it's great as well. I'm certainly glad I took the plunge.

    personally i wouldn't buy an iPad just now, since most likely there will be a new one out in a few months but...

    i'm not you and you're not me :D hope you're enjoying your iPad! I love mine :) Will be keeping it until it dies or maybe till iPad 3 comes along....unless iPad 2 is really really loads better :D

    Yeah! Congrats to the new iPad owners. It's an awesome gizmo.

    Just watch the auto correct. It likes to turn "Congrats" into "Contests". ;)
