Now the wait begins for my iPad 2 64gb 3G. The website said 2-3 weeks and I must have been in the first 10 mins or so since orders began to be accepted online. Also ordered a red leather smart cover and wireless keyboard.
Finally!! Now just some patience! It is 4:19 am and time to sleep....ya right!

edit: Just got an email from Apple...items will leave Apple by April 15 and arrive here April 22. So I guess I will have to have patience. Still beats standing in line for hours.

Congratulations on the new purchase
Maybe you could take photos of the unboxing and post them here?

Hopefully the ship times are accurate. The Apple Store US has been saying 3-4 weeks for a while now.

Good luck,

That brings up a question I have been pondering since they shortened the projected ship times. When I ordered mine last week (19th) they gave me a projected ship by date of 21 Apr with delivery on the 26th. I am assuming (hopefully justifiably) that though Apple hasn't notified me of the improvements in their ship dates I will probably be getting mine a couple of weeks ahead of original promise date.

Thoughts?

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Have you logged into your Apple account to see if there has been changes to your order, or failing that phoned them?

Also I am hoping since I ordered within the first 5-10 minutes of being able to do so online in my country that maybe they are just being conservative and will hopefully ship it sooner than projected.

Simon: I could take some pics of the unboxing when it happens, but haven't there already been tons of people that have done this since I had to wait 2 weeks beyond the US launch?

Wow, Razormac, I too ordered my iPad (32GB 3G) early this morning. Although I was not expecting a 2-3 week wait. It is not a big deal to me, patience is a virtue! ha...

My brother, on the other hand, has decided to line up outside of the Apple Store at yorkdale (Toronto). I told him if he can get his hand on an 2 to buy it for me. Then I will just sell the one I ordered for what I paid for it. Sometimes having an insane brother is a good thing!

Yes you are lucky. I myself do not have a lackie who is willing to go to the store and stand in line to get me one. I assume your brother is just wanting one for himself. I am guessing that it may be the same in store as it was online, only 2 allowed.

edit: Even though I drive near Yorkdale every time I go to work, I will not venture into their almost always packed parking lot. I can't imagine what it would be like today!!

Yeah, he is there with his wife and they are each getting 1. So he is going to try and get one for me, and his wife is going to grab one for my roommate. Hopefully I get a phone call later this afternoon with good news.

He said he is near the front of the line (he should be, hes been there since 5am)

Wow, waiting in line for 12 hours. I've always wondered, what do the people who are alone waiting in line do when they have to go to the washroom? LOL

I haven't called them, but did log in to check and they are still showing the same ship date. Hopefully they are following a first in first out system. If so, should be seeing our new iPads early rather than late April.
