Originally have it my receipt the iPad wasn't supposed to ship until July 6th with a July 9th delivery. Just got an e-mail update that it started shipping today and will be here the 30th! Out-friggin'-standing! Nine days ahead of schedule.
For a timeline reference for others that ordered, I put the order in for mine this past Saturday night. So right at ten days. Looks like that's going to work out! I love new toys!
