I think 16th is following the US Timezone so that makes it our 17th. My concern is that 17th is a Saturday and I wonder if they will ship over the weekend. We may just have to wait till the 19th but I hope I am wrong.

Tony
don't worry about the time zone thingy, products always follow the launch day of the country itself, e.g. if a game is launched on the 1st Jan, it'll launch on the 1st Jan in Singapore and also all the other countries when they reach 1st Jan. so SG actually has an advantage during product launches hah

I have ordered it on the date of launch. In this case, will the delivery be on 16 March itself or 17/18 March? Reason being if it is on 16 Mar, I will want to deliver to my office instead as no one may be at home. If it is 17/18 Mar, then I will want it to deliver to home instead.

Any idea?

It's backwards compatible. You will still be able to use your 3G sim card.

Is it not supported? Singtel offers a 4G mobile internet plan that I think might just work with the iPad 3rd generation. Don't hold me against it thou.

I've ordered my iPad Wifi+4G 64GB Black. I got the 64 GB one is due to the size of a properly compressed video file (about 8GB/2 hours). Even with the 64GB I'm not too sure if there is enough space.

New iPad's glitch: It may not run on 4G here yet

All new orders now ships by 22nd March.

Note that it's "Ships by" not "Delivers by"

I can understand if it's a totally new gadget. But I can't understand what the fuss is about an old product with only some minor tweaks. People won't even know if you are carrying an old or new iPad unless they look at it real close.
