Delays, and other things

AppleInsider reports that there are delays on the Keyboard dock and the 10W USB power adapter to sometimes in April. They also report that the iPad soft case, which was supposed to ship on April 3, has been delayed until mid-April.

I just checked the status of my order, and at least at the moment, the case is still listed as "Ships: BY APRIL 3RD" so I wonder if they are now just back-ordered on the cases?

I'm curious about the keyboard dock; but decided to wait until I can see and try one in a store before risking buying one of those...
