    Default Apple Already Shipping U.S. New iPad Pre-Orders, Some U.K. Buyers Deliveries Delayed



    Apple has already started shipping new iPads to customers with delivery dates set for March 16.

    Early shipments are not unprecedented, and our own Kyle Matthews has his black 32GB third generation iPad en route complete with a “Modmyi.com” engraving. But, not everyone is reporting Apple will meet their originally reported shipping schedule.

    MacRumors is reporting a number of customers in the U.K. have reported Apple notified them their launch day iPad orders would be delayed by several days. The orders, which Apple originally quoted for a March 16 delivery date, have had delivery estimates moved back to March 19 or as late as March 21.

    Despite our best efforts and those of our shipping partners to get your order to you on time, we want to inform you that it will not arrive on its originally scheduled delivery date.
    Your new delivery date is 20/03/2012.

    Once you receive your Shipment Notification email, you can check the delivery status of your order by clicking the Track Shipment button, or by visiting the Apple Store and clicking Account.

    We regret the delay and apologise for the inconvenience.

    Kind regards,
    Apple Online Store
    It appears Apple has prioritized U.S. shipments ahead of other regions. For those looking to secure a launch day arrival, Apple’s U.S. site is quoting every iPad for launch-day delivery except the white 16GB Wi-Fi model, all white AT&T LTE models, and the black 16GB LTE model.

    No worries, when the 4S came out mine didn't show "shipping" until the day before it arrived on release day. While its always cool to see that it is on it's way, it doesn't always mean what you see...

    Has anyone ever had a tougher time reselling an older gen device because of its custom engraving?

    Got a shipping email today. Mine is in Pennsylvania and will be here in a week. I find it funny that it'll take a week to get here when I only live 3 walking days away lol.

    My guess is Kyle doesn't sell his older devices. Probably has a special cabinet for them to be on display.

    Probably has a first gen iPhone in there with the old site name.

    What was the old site name? Wasn't it modmyiphone or something?

    Ok I know this is wishful thinking but... Supposively the iPads were being built back in November December (could be wrong on that) at that time neither 5.1 nor absinthe had been created(well 5.1 was but still beta and not on the iPads). So potentially the new iPad won't be on 5.1 yet and absinthe might have an opening still?

    I know nearly impossible, but as I said wishful thinking.

    I'm assuming the engraved iPads are shipping from hong kong (through Alaska) and non engraved seem to be already in major city's waiting to be delivered. Sounds to me like some of these iPads have been here in the states a while and waiting. More reason to think they are on 5.0.1
