I guess I had to just entertain the thought, toy with it a bit, you know?
I seriously have not been this entranced with wanting a device ever. Not even for the xbox 360...and I'm a pretty avid gamer.

I'm seriously steeling myself for another 2 week wait, if necessary. As others have said, we've all waited this long, what's another two weeks? I just know that once I committed to the 3G version, I simply wouldn't be satisfied with a WiFi-only iPad. So, I'm holding out and doing so with a big fake smile on my face

Valid question that I don't believe has been really explained. In the past, When Apple releases new products, the date they announce is usually the day you get it. I am not sure if that will be the situation here since they have already shipped versions of this product, but that's is what I believe to be the case

But yeah, whenever Apple says late XXXX, they typically mean the last day of the month.

I am now a short-timer. I can do ten days standing on my head.

I don't think I could get any more frustrated.
I wait to order the 3G because the Apple store sales clerk told me if I want one in the store, I need to wait until they release an official date before I can reserve one for pick up.
The by May 7th date comes out yesterday.
I call Apple to find out how to reserve it at the store for pick up, the lady tells me oh the release date is May 7th, you'll have yours by then, but you need to order it now.
I order it now.
I get a call saying the WiFi version has FINALLY come in. I decide since I've already reserved a 3G, I'll let the Wifi one go.
Now today they're saying April 30th.
Arrrrrrrrrrrrgh. I've screwed myself once again and now I have to wait till May 7th, when I could've had one on April 30 had I waited one more day to reserve it at the store.
This is really starting to tick me off!!

VLennert, your frustration is understandable! As much as I love Apple, so often is the case that the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
You still have the option of buying one at an Apple store of April 30th, right? That's what a friend of mine will be doing. He has not pre-ordered.

The funny thing is, they sent me a "Customer Satisfaction Survey" email and haha I feel really sorry for the poor soul who has to read that. I let them have it regarding all the hoops they've made me jump through to STILL end up getting mine a week after everyone else, even though I did make three visits to Apple store.
Oh well. I think I'm going to try standing in line on the 30th to see if I can nab one. I'll have them cancel my online order if I can get in the door and get my paws on one. Here's to hoping that strategy will work!!

You should have been a Palm customer. They allocated short supply by discriminating by type of customer. CDMA first, GSM late if ever. WM first, Palm OS late if ever. They would never admit that they might never get around to you.
I am not talking about hours or days but months to a year.
As a result, one can now buy the whole company for today's increase in AAPL market value..
