New iPad 3G orders set to ship on May 7th

The Apple online store is now showing a May 7th shipping date for new orders of all the iPad 3G models.  This is the first time a definite date is shown, instead of a vague reference to late April.  Business Insider reports that Apple has sent an email to customers who have place early pre-orders of the 3G models to reassure them that their iPads are still on track for shipping in April.

If you placed an early pre-order for an iPad 3G you should be getting an email with the following message:

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

Thank you for choosing Apple.

The Apple Store Team
