my guess is the holiday messed it up and they seem to have started the process for shipment on the 5th.
either way, it's nbd to me really, i'm rapidly running out of space on the 8GB I/O tablet, and will probably just give it to my mom so she can be part of the cool crowd, even though she has finally learned how to send texts within the past month.
i wonder how hard it would be to take of the back cover and swap it with my 16gb one....
edit: here is a copy of the email i got:
At this point it is no longer possible to cancel this preorder. Preorder
shipment processing on your order has begun, which means that our shipping
provider is moving forward with delivery preparation.
Once you receive shipment confirmation and tracking number via email, I
recommend leaving a prominent note on the door to let our shipping
provider know that you're refusing delivery of the package. In some cases
our shipping provider has returned packages if their drivers see a note
for refusal of delivery. The note should include the following:
- Refuse delivery-Return to Sender
- Include signature
- Include tracking #
If your package is returned due to refusal of delivery, your order will be
cancelled and refunded within 2 weeks.
If the package is successfully delivered in spite of the delivery refusal
note on your door, you can still refuse delivery of unopened packages
within 5 days of delivery. To do so, contact our shipping provider
directly to schedule a pick up of your package. Make sure to let them know
that the pickup is specifically because you're refusing delivery.
IMPORTANT: Don't open the package. Our shipping provider will not allow
refusal of delivery for opened packages."

whats weird is that i never had a hold on my account for the preorder, nor do i have a charge yet for an actual order that is shipping...
edit2: after looking at ifixit's page, it looks like it's pretty easy to swap back covers.
