iPad 2 Orders Begin Early
As expected, Apple updated their online store a day early and begun offering the iPad 2 for order. The current estimated shipping date for the iPad 2 states March 18 - March 25th. Unfortunately there is no express delivery options.
The iPad 2 was originally intended to begin sales at 4am Eastern tomorrow, but in a continuing trend, Apple has started this release early.
Anyone putting in their orders today?
Apple - iPad - All-new design. Video calls. HD video. And more.

Logged on speedily @ 3:50am EST, order placed @ 3:52. Logged back on @ 4:10 and the site was slowww. Just now confirmed the Smart Cover is on it's way, but the iPad, ????. Now AppleInsider is reporting 2-3 weeks.

Woke up at 3:50am Eastern. Ordered it by 3:55am. It didn't have an ETA. Just logged in now (9:28am EST).
Ships: 3 - 5 business days
Delivers: Mar 18 - Mar 25
If you order now though it warns 2-3 weeks on the order page.

I ordered mine at 12:55 PST. My order also says between March 18-25. Oh well. Having it delivered to my home beats waiting in possible long lines and then possibly not getting one after waiting.

What the heck?? Who said the iPad 2 online orders were supposed to start tomorrow? Its been on their website that online orders would begin today at 1am PT.

When I saw the shipping time was 3-5 days, I stopped my order. Now it's 2-3 weeks? This is still pretty new to me, but that seemed to go quicker than I had thought. Does this mean that there probably will be a longer line at the Apple retail store?

I would have ordered if it was arriving tomorrow. But no need for me to wait three weeks for a slighlt faster version of what i already have. Ipad 3.

i ordered mines. Was at work and was waiting until 4am eastern but decided to not do much work and checked around 3:30-3:45am and was able to order. Hopefully those few extra minutes makes the difference between a cancellation letter and a shipped letter!

I'm 3rd in line. The other 2 people arrived literally a few minutes before me. =[ I can't wait for the shipping! I need my iPad 2 NOW!!

I ordered mine supposed to receive April 8th according to what Apples e-mail confirmation said which is fine for me.The closest Apple Store is 2 and a half hours away from me and the other stores that carry it are 25 miles away plus I would risk them not having one.I did not have my 1st gen till April from what I remember so that is fine.

Ordered mine at 1:05am PT. I was actually able to see that it was already on sale at 12:45am so i started my order right away using Apple Store app on iPhone. Received a confirmation email 30 minutes later saying order is received, shipping is estimated 3-5 business days.
This morning got a notification that Smart Cover is already shipped, just waiting on iPad...

Logged in last night at exactly 1:00 AM. Placed my order, with the 3 to 5 day timeframe but didn't get an acknowledgement email. Checked on order this morning. Problems with credit card. Entered a different credit card. Order accepted and still have the 3 to 5 day shipping time.
Stood in line for the first WiFi version at a Best Buy, so the line started at 6:00 AM. Since I still have my original 64 GB WiFi version (I sold a 3G version that I had purchased to grandfather into the ATT unlimited deal about 3 weeks ago), I can wait a few days. Anyone interested in a well-used iPad 1? I can ship next week!
