I have visions of a long return line if the 3g ships early. So pretend it is shipping at the same time, would you have ordered it instead? Will you be exchanging it? We have one of each coming, and the wifi one wasn't ever considered to become a 3g version (it's for a teen), so my purchases stay the same. Except the wifi one in the house did/does at least give me one to play with while waiting! Lol! Anyway, still hoping they do indeed ship early!!
