And my iPad 2 was a week early! - Mark's Journal

And my iPad 2 was a week early!
After Wednesday's lament that ordering online meant a much longer wait than necessary for my iPad 2, the "April 1st" likely delivery date changed to March 29th, and then I was pleasantly surprised that the iPad showed up on Friday morning.

At first, I was confused by the box, which just says "iPad," not "iPad 2," and I was afraid that Apple had shipped (or, worse, I had ordered) the wrong thing. A closer look, and I realized the teensy camera lenses on the iPad made it clearly an iPad 2.

Of course, I forgot the HDMI adapter cable (which arrived over a week ago) at work, and when I stopped at the office to pick up the backup hard drive, forgot to grab it. So, no testing out the cool ability to play anything from the iPad on the TV today. I'll live. :-)

I was going to suggest you try ordering the Verizon Wireless model from the Apple Store, but those are showing a 3-4 week delivery time! Guess it's a popular model. :-)

I'm really liking my iPad so far, especially the keyboard that I can actually properly type on! :) I think the pad is going to become my mobile option more than my laptop from here on in.
