I was about two minutes away from hitting the publish button, on a post about how I was frustrated that the wouldnâ€™t be delivered today, when I got a call from a number I didnâ€™t recognize. It was the UPS driver, he asked me to meet him outside to grab a package. I was told by not only Apple, but also several sources from UPS that â€™s would not be delivered, here in Hawaii, until Monday because UPS didnâ€™t do Saturday delivery in my area. This was frustrating because we of course wanted to bring our readers coverage of the device from day one (and who isnâ€™t excited to get a new gadget!) but it was starting to look like we wouldnâ€™t be able to do that. Despite the email from Apple and several confirmations from within UPS, the iPad got here on April 3rd, as promised, and the box had a nice big â€œSaturdayâ€ sticker on it. Well played UPS — thanks for getting it here on time even if there was some sort of miscommunication!

So weâ€™ve got our iPad and weâ€™re ready to start checking it out. Iâ€™ll spare you are lengthy unboxing as the whole thing is relatively simple, and has been covered to death by the rest of the world by now. Iâ€™ll just drop a few pictures and a very short video, and thatâ€™ll be that for the unboxing and weâ€™ll quickly move on to the more exciting stuff!
