Thank you!Yep. Everyone else that hasn't had theirs engraved are still on Processing.
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/shippingProcessing 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.
You should be able to get yours on launch day regardless of what that map is showing you. I mean, look where Melbourne is on the map. The nearest TNT Express depot is also in Welshpool, WA, which is only minutes away from Perth.It's strange.

All the rural towns are zone 1!?!?
Find that hard to believe.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.
not entirely surprising considering the stunt they pulled with the iPhone 4S preorders :SFind 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.
From what I remember, people were expecting to receive the iPhone 4S on release day like everybody else who pre-ordered early (in the US). A couple of days before release, people started ringing customer support asking them what was going on with their orders. Apple responded pretty much replied with, 'You won't be getting them on release day' because they were getting shipped from China. We didn't believe them until shipping notifications were sent and we had to wait a week after launch to receive the iPhone.Refresh my memory. What happened with the 4S? I didn't grab one of them.
