Apple iPad Wi-Fi + 3G Now Available for Pre-Order in the US

Darn. Rob beat me to it. Both versions are available for pre-order. Wi-Fi+3G shows late April as delivery time.

@Dan: I wouldn't be worried. After all, what else is Apple going to do with your credit card.
I printed a copy of my order just in case. I will probably call Apple directly and confirm the order number just to be on the safe side.

Canada? Helloooooo? Also, at the current exchange rate, it works out to $499 USD = $519 CAN, I hope it's not $549 or $599.

I like to pick-up in store because I like the commotion and the atmosphere. It's fun. Yeah I'm a geek I know. Plus there is always the chance of missing the delivery. I would rather walk out of a store with product in hand.

On related news... some developers don't have access to the iPhone Developer Program again.
The website database is somehow not linked with the membership status.
That sucks.

Well Konstantin, thanks for letting me waste a click for a micro blog post that could have been pasted here as a comment. Be courteous?

JM:
How exactly is it possible to 'waste' a click? Surely, you're not limited in the amount of times you can click per day?
Konstantin has found out a few interesting things, you shouldn't resent him for seeking a few more hits on his blog.

If Apple can sell a 3G version of the Ipad for an extra $130 with no carrier subsidy, then how come they can't sell an unlocked 32GB iphone for $430 -- ie, $130 more than a comparable ipod touch?

I would of considered getting a 3g 16gb if it would of also been available on the 3rd of April. Then again, I don't want another bill so I'll jus tether with my iPhone :-)

Got my email conformation from Apple, now I just need a doctor to put me in a coma till late April.
SOOOOO Excited

Way to much hype, I will wait and see what it can and can't do. I still my end up with a Netbook for work related need, this seems to be a consumer product which is fine but I would have like to see some USB ports, etc.

Im excited but I can wait. I want to see what it's sporting on release day and I want to play with it in store. Glad they started Orr order on the 3g versions. They probably want to get a judge of which type people are favoring.

@CharFeld.
3G modems for MIDs, netbooks, and notebooks are almost always add-on options that cost the user money, and are likewise almost always carrier-specific.
Also, Apple does sell an iPhone without the 3G radio -- it's called the iPod Touch, and it's much less expensive than the iPhone.

Well I did it. I pre-ordered the 64GB 3G so I have to wait until the end of April also. My friend at work pre-ordered the 64GB WiFi version so at least I will see it first hand April 3.
