Yep. Everyone else that hasn't had theirs engraved are still on Processing.
Processing for me, ordered about 7pm - 8/3/12.
Got my acknowledgement email at about 7:45
Here's hoping mine arrives Friday, but I doubt it as I am in a rural area.
It's strange. Perth is the major city in WA, but it appears to be in zone 2 http://store.apple.com/au/browse/overlay/ipad/shipping
All the rural towns are zone 1!?!?
I preordered mine as soon as it came out on online store. It still says processing. I contacted Apple to follow up because it seemed odd. She said you will most likely receive it on March 22nd with a slim chance of the 16th. She said she has only seen a few that have been shipped for the 16th. Hopefully still get it on the 16th. I got my iPad smart cover today though. I ordered Black 32 GB wifi. Also I am on Gold Coast Queensland which is zone 1.
Find that hard to believe.
If, as someone has pointed out, the devices are already in sydney. They only really need to be dispatched on Thursday...
Even coming from China they probably wouldn't need to begin shipment until tomorrow.
Refresh my memory. What happened with the 4S? I didn't grab one of them.
