iPad+3G To Begin Shipping May 7th

Apple began informing customers who had preordered its 3G-enabled iPad model that the product would ship in late April as originally announced. In addition, it updated the Apple store page to list the product as shipping “by May 7th.” Customers will be limited to two devices per order.

This doesn’t do anything to help the situation internationally. Pre-orders would still start on May 10, with shipment in late April. Its not immediately clear whether Apple would make both models available for pre-order initially, or follow a similar release schedule as they have here in the US.

    Also you are limited to 4 per customer. So you can place 2 orders of 2, and then they will cancel any further orders before shipping them.

    I think you mean “late May” here. Unless you mean April, 2011 … in that case the situation is truly dire.
