Apple marks iPad Wi-Fi + 3G units ‘Prepared for Shipment’

Many MacDailyNews readers are writing in to tell us that their pre-ordered iPad Wi-Fi + 3G units have been “Prepared for Shipment” by Apple.

So have our iPads!

Here’s one:

MacDailyNews Take: Aunt Tilly’s about to get some serious company!

On April 20, Apple announced that that iPad Wi-Fi + 3G models will be delivered to US customers who’ve pre-ordered on Friday, April 30, and will be available in Apple retail stores the same day starting at 5:00pm local time.

iPad will be available at the end of May (think: May 31st, if history is any guide) in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Apple will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders for iPad on May 10.

Thanks to everyone who sent us info and screenshots about their iPad 3Gs being prepared for shipment!


  1. FYI. I spoke with Apple Customer Service yesterday and the guy there said that my stuff was being shipped from the Austin, TX warehouse. So, the 3G iPads are already in-country. They don’t have to ship from China. I guess that’s the advantage of not offering custom configurations. My new Core i7 MBP is arriving on Friday also (but shipped on Tuesday from China).

  2. TO:Verizon Ipad
    “I’m using my non-AT&T;WiFi iPad and can get a Verizon MyFi Mobile 3g to WiFi router anytime I’m ready.”

    Yes, you can do that. Fr $49.99 to purchase the MiFi WITH a 2 year contract. AND you’ll pay $60 per month with a 5GB limit.

    AT&T;- no contract, prepaid $15 or $30 per month (only when needed), and NO GB cap on the $30 plan (per AT&T;press release). And AT&T;has a faster network.

    Love Verizon all you want, but there’s no comparison when it comes to this situation.

  3. Aunt Tilly is selling her iPad in Europe for twice what she paid for it ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    Never doubt Aunt Tilly.
