I put my name on the reserve list at the local store (UTC in San Diego) on 5/4. I got a confirmation email, but haven't yet received notification that the iPad has arrived. I ordered the 32gb 3g model.

I stopped by today and they said they haven't received a shipment in a week.

How is your wait?

No wait here. Purchased my 64gb iPad 3G and Apple case on launch day--no reservation of any kind. I was in line a total of 10 minutes and had my iPad 5 minutes later. It was so easy I thought the 3G might not sell so well -- and only came to find out later that subsequently all stores are sold out. Makes me wonder if there isn't an artifical shortage going on here.

I doubt it's artificial. I think they are gearing up for the international launch and want to have supply on hand for that so they are rationing US buyers that came late to the party. I think they are just trickling them out as needed and trying to keep the wait to about a week as that is what they state for shipping if you buy online.
