    Hold your horses, turbo!

    First of all, I'm a chick.

    Second of all, I haven't decided yet and I have till like 3:00 PM tomorrow to decide. Decisions, decisions. I could cancel my 3G order and just live with the WiFi version for a bit, then sell it and upgrade, no? Ahhhhhhhhhh, my inpatience is KILLING me. Why oh why do I have the patience of a gnat??

    What would y'all do? Seriously, if you could have a wifi in your greasy little paws today or wait until May 8th for the 3G?
    I would wait....you have waited this long what's a few more days. It will just make receiving your 3g that much sweeter.

    I hope that with some people having their credit cards billed the 3G iPad will be available at the Apple Stores this weekend. My dad is in Phoenix Saturday and is willing to pick one up for me if they are on sale by then.

    VLennert, I think you made the right decesion. It has been a tough wait, but it won't be for much longer.

    Yeah, I pretty much knew I was going to have to let it go. I mean, I don't have money to burn and I have gone through this much agony..whats another couple of weeks?

    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.

    Take this for what is is worth...but I have read a number of posts on other forums where members have asked Apple reps when the 3g would be in the stores. The majority were told it would be closer to early May before you would see them in stores.

    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

    quick question on this subject... when they say "ships by: May 7th" does that mean, it should arrive at my place on may 7th? or begin its shipping on may 7th?

    Looks like those who pre-ordered will have their iPads delivered on April 30th.

    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

    Well, I guess if you're going to use "late April", you might as well use the whole month. Sheesh.

    Technically they only promised that it would ship by late April, so they could have shipped them on April 30th and kept their promise. Instead, you'll actually have it in your hands on April 30th. That's better, right?

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

    I was to have been in London 4/23-29. Was afraid that I might miss THE date. Trip is off but I would have been back in time. London meeting will take place in NYC in May. Will have the iPad for the meeting. I will report on how many other iPads are in the meeting.

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

    There's still time to order another iPad accessory and have it arrive before your iPad, if you hurry

    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.

    Yeah, I literally have been through the ringer just trying to reserve/buy an iPad.

    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!!

    Think Apple is bad. They work pretty hard to allocate a short supply equitably, to give everyone an equal chance.

    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..
