Your Apple iPad is in!

Like two million others before me, I am getting my iPad – today. Yes, t minus 90 minutes before I head to the Apple store in Salem, N.H. to pick up my  64 GB 3G iPad.

It seems so appropriate for Father’s Day. Just plunk down the $829 cost on plastic (add $30 for the cover and god knows what else I’ll get while I am in the spending mood) and worry about paying later. Truly the American way…

As many of you know, the iPad is seriously back-ordered. I put my iPad reservation in 4-5 weeks ago and checked on it Friday. The store salesman told me it had no reservation for me on record, but that he’d re-enter it and I should expect to wait two months for delivery.

The next day as in yesterday June 19th, I got an e-mail from Apple telling me my unit was in and that it would be held in my name for 24 hours. I’ll take that as a good sign.

I better print out that e-mail and take it with me.

  • Hi John,

    I was fortunate to pre-order my iPad, the same configuration as you are getting. I have had it since it’s initial availability and have loved it. I view the iPad as a great tool for consuming information. The email application is great. The Twitter app is better than any on the PC, including tweet deck. I religiously read the USA Today and NYTimes on-line daily usig their app. I take it with me when I travel and it has been a great tool. During a recent trade show, I slipped it into a small portfolio and was able to stay connected during the conference without carrying a bulky laptop.

    I would love to hear from you regarding your experiences. Mine have been fantastic, and of course I am typing this on my iPad!
