I begin to wonder if Microsoft will actually only send one shipping notification those who pre-ordered online. That notice geing the cover being shipped. Then actually have both of them shipping together. Anyone agree?

I suspect the tablets themselves are be handled by UPS (or FedEx) logistics division and are stored close to the destination. the notifications will go out when the move from the logistics side of the warehouse to the delivery side. I know in the past for large pre-orders I've gotten the notification the day before arrival. UPS offers logistic services where they'll warehouse product and print the labels as orders come in or are released for shipment. They probably didn't do this for accessories.

 

At least that's what I hope since I haven't received a shipment notification yet.

WPCentral just put up a cool article on how to track your Surface shipment even when you didnt get the notice yet.

Just did this myself and found that my extra type cover is shipping via UPS coming from Ontario, California. My Surface on the other hand is being shipped by FedEx coming from China.

 

Make sure to check both parcel services. :)

Cool. Well, I was wrong about being stored locally. Mine is coming FedEx and is either either still in China or on a plane. Listed for delivery before 10:30am on 26th.

This stinks - FedEx says my shipment is coming on 10/29...

 

FedEx picked up my shipment in Suzhou, China on 10/24 9:32p local time. Then it said "Package received after FedEx cutoff".

I checked the FedEx page and nothing listed. I can find my shipment on UPS but there is no info other than this "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.", and there is a label created date of Oct 22nd. This is for the Type Cover only, haven't received any other shipping notices from Microsoft yet.

Lethbridge, did you make sure you followed all the instructions for FedEx? It didn't work the first time I didn't it either. Second time it did. Are you tracking by reference?

That sucks. They did say guaranteed by 10/26 so keep positive.

Tried every combination possible on FedEx website but nothing found. Not too worried about having to wait longer, just would like to know when it is coming. Although the charges for the Type Cover showed up on my credit card today, with a charge date of October 22nd.

Lethbridge - I had to change the shipping date to 10/23 to get the info to come up - try playing around with that...

Tried that, changed it to the 22nd as well. Even for the heck of it tried changing destination country to US (I'm in Canada), with every date and still nothing. No big deal though, it will get here eventually.
