Many people who pre-ordered their iPad 3Gs are sending in emails to let us know that their units have been ‘Prepared for shipment’ by Apple.
Apple did state that those who pre-ordered would receive their iPads on April 30th. Some have said it’s been an agonizing wait to get the iPad in their hands whilst many have already had the luxury of the Wifi model and been playing around with it for 4 weeks.
Reviewers of the Wifi model have mentioned that the iPad is amazing but there were many times when they wished they had a 3G model when out and about.
For those who have preordered their 3G iPads, the wait will probably have been worth it.
Apparently the iPad 3G will also be available in Apple retail stores and at Best Buy on April 30th according to Steve Jobs! An email to Jobs asking if the 3G iPad would be available at Best Buy on April 30th the response came back as ‘Yep’.
It was previously thought that 3G would not be available until May 7th but if the above is believed to be true then Christmas has come early for some! It still shows on the Apple website that any orders for the iPad 3G will be shipped by May 7th.
