If what Gizmodo is posting is true then web pre-orders for iPads will SHIP, not *arrive* on the first day of availability.
That’s a BIG BUMMER if so. Haven’t we waited long enough? (I have!)
Is this Apple trying to increase foot traffic on Day 1? An inability or unwillingness to deal with the logistics to ship them to arrive on Day 1?
Either way I am not pleased. Still ordering one (not into mobs and lines at stores).
EDIT: The good news is that Gizmodo was wrong. As we now know, Apple is doing its best to ensure delivery on Day 1, rather than shipping on Day 1. (Sounds like a new calendar I’m talking about!)
