You need to modify your shipping option during the checkout process...all options are available from free to overnight:

Apple Store (U.S.)

Hope this helps,

you might be mixing the Availability with Shipping.

On the Apple Store Website it says that the 3G+WiFi will start shipping within 5 to 7 days. Free Shipping will probably add another 5 days, while overnight shipping will give you an extra day.

So you are looking at anywhere between 6-8 days if you choose overnight, and 10-14 days if you go with the free option.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Normally most Apple products are "shippable" within 24hrs. Because the iPad is a "HOT" item at the moment...Apple probably has more demand than supply. So if you ordered an iPad today...it probably isn't even built yet...but would be in the next 5-7 days.

So if you upgraded to overnight shipping (for an extra cost of course)...you still wouldn't get the iPad for at least 5-7 days...if not 4-8 days.

I'm only guessing here...but maybe Apple is shipping the iPads that are ordered as fast as possible already (as quickly as they are manufactured)...so maybe there is no way of speeding up the shipping process.
