Apple Now Shipping iPads

Apple is now shipping iPads to those people who placed an order on the first day. Don't get too excited though, Apple has instructed UPS to hold the iPads until April 3, 2010.

UPS is under strict orders to only deliver the Wi-Fi model of the iPad to US customers on 3 April. Whether a few models slip through the net remains to be seen though, our experience is that once they're out in the wild a few start to turn up.

The 3G models are still set to appear at the end of April. Apple still has not announced a ship date in the UK, and is not currently taking pre-orders. We expect the iPad to go on sale in the UK at the end of April.
