    I ordered one on March 12, the Wi-Fi + 3G version and yesterday I ordered a Wi-Fi version and it says it will be delivered on April 3rd. However I was just checking out the store, again just now just for the fun of it, and guess what . . .

    Now they are showing that they will be shipped by April 12th, so I hope that is for future orders. They must have sold out of the pre-orders and now going on the back orders. This is for the Wi-Fi versions. The 3G versions are still late April.

    This is on the USA site at least. Check it out if you don't believe me.

    Could also be, with only a week to launch, that there isn't enough time to guarantee delivery on the 3rd and also that Apple needs to ramp up production of the 3G version.

    They might want a certain amount available in the stores too.

    Maybe but I think at this point the Wi-Fi versions are outselling the Wi-Fi +3G versions. I think they may have under estimated the pre-orders that they were going to get. This may be more successful launch than when iPhone first came out. But I could be wrong.

    No, my point is that Apple has to start manufacturing the 3G versions for mid/late-April delivery.

    Well you are right there. They do need to get started so we can get our hands on the Wi-Fi +3G models. :D

    date changes could be due to minimum time needed to ship and process transactions? You can't just order one day before and expect to receive next day.

    glad that I opted for store pickup. I wonder now how the lines will be.

    if ridiculous I'm not waiting. will just get in person once the rush is over.

    1 hour is about the most i'd wait.

    I ordered 1 for delivery and I reserved 1 in the store. If it looks like there will be a shortage early, I will make the drive to pick up that extra 1 I reserved.

    their supplies are probably on a different schedule, i think that only only the launch is coordinated for both (In store and shipping)
