    Grrrr, this is really getting annoying .. i'd at least like to know the date of the release. This is really starting to sound like shipping April 30th.

    what sort of "news" were you hoping for?

    "Like we said, end of April..."

    That would not exactly be news.

    I was expecting a date on when they are going to accept reservations and/or when the device is going to ship.

    They've been accepting reservations since the time the pre-ordered opened up.

    Seriously

    It is beyond me why they can't announce a date. Even if they said April 30, that's cool. Just give us a date already.

    At the Apple Store today, one of the sales people told a customer they expected it late April or possibly the beginning of May and that Apple usually announces things 3 weeks in advance, meaning it is a minimum of 3 weeks away. That we have no date yet has me wondering if May could be a reality.

    They have been accepting pre-orders. No one can reserve one for in-store pickup yet, so, no they have not been accepting 3G reservations and they are not accepting them now.

    Not sure why not one of the idiot blogging reporters did not ask that question at the news conference!

    Someone email Steve and ask him. I already tried last week when my card had a credit hold for the iPad. The hold has since been released and my pre-order still says shipping Late April. I don't want to email him again and become one of those people :)

    They may be waiting for someone to leak the Jailbreak exploit so they can patch it before they release it...;)

    They never accepted reservations for the 3G model. Trust me, I was on the site the minute reservations opened up.

    They were too busy asking questions that were already answered ... such as, what about 4.0 for the iPad ... *boggle* ... I wanna know who that was that wasn't paying attention to the keynote.

    We're still waiting for news on the iPad full stop.

    No pricing, availability or retail information has been released as yet and we're now into the second week of April with expected arrival in just a few weeks.

    Apple, I can haz info?

    I believe if a ship date were available it would have been announced. Had anyone asked the answer would have been "late April."

    It will ALWAYS be "late April" until Apple says otherwise. There is no point in asking anyone here.

    If you have not ordered by now......

    I ordered the 3G version the same day I ordered the WiFi unit.

    Assume April 24th or 30th would be a good bet.

    Frustration continuos

    I am frustrated also. We pay more for the better machine and yet the people who decided to get the cheap version are getting to enjoy it first. Good move to piss off the high end buyers.

    Does anyone know why they could not get the 3G out at the same time as the non-3G.

    Was it that Apple wanted to have a second marketing Big Bang..!

    This is very frustrating but a good marketing strategy if that is what they were doing....!

    otherwise they should "fire" the project manager for the 3G version.

    I think I'm going to bring my 64GB WiFi back and hold out for the 3G. Thoughts?

    Not a good idea, there is a huge amount of mail theft in our building and Fedex has been well known to just leave packages. I would rather walk to the Apple store and just have it that day without any hassles.

    FedEx is instructed not to leave it w/o a signature. I've never had UPS or FedEX leave a package if the requirement is in effect by the merchant.

    Think of it this way: If ATT has issues dealing with data use via the iPhone, how well do you think they will handle the addition of an iPad which requires even more data use?

    ATT's network is not prepared and thus the reason for the delay and lack of date.
