Do you think there is a possibility that most people will still receive their orders today regardless of order status, preorder date, accessories, etc.? Maybe Google is just slowly and randomly charging CCs and updating Wallet, and whether you heard anything or not all the tablets are in the hands of UPS and on the way or out for delivery.
One way to kill this ray of hope is myups. I'm not sure how it works, but people say they notify you of a shipment...nothing to do with google. Thing is, I don't understand how they notify me if I don't actually log in to myups and input the tracking number. Can UPS look at my name/address and tell me I have something on the way, even if I had no clue about it?
They never said they would be delivered today, only that pre-orders would ship by today. Based on a two day delivery they should be delivered by Thursday or possibly Friday (if the shipping label is created late in the day).
My UPS doesn't work for me. I got the update from Google before they even had it in their system.
It's possible to get a package and have the tracking info be lost to the ether. If you missed the email from Google somehow that is. Their tracking system seems to have improved drastically in the past year.
