Even though Apple’s website says that current iPad 3G orders are shipping on May 7th, Apple today sent an email reassuring their pre-order customers that they would indeed be receiving their iPads in ‘Late April’ as originally promised.  Phew?

To Our Valued Apple Customer:

Thank you for your recent order of the magical and revolutionary iPad 3G.

We would like to confirm that your order will be shipped in late April as communicated at the time you placed your order. You will receive a confirmation notice when your order has shipped.

You can get up-to-date information about your order, including shipping status and tracking number, at http://www.apple.com/orderstatus 

Thank you for choosing Apple.
