    Apple usually ships pre-ordered iPads so that they arrive on or very near the release date. Until they run out, anyway. Then the shipping dates start to slip.

    Warning: Even if/when you start seeing shipping notifications early (and you probably will) the parcel service is not allowed to deliver early. So don't get too excited over where the iPad is at any one moment. Unless someone messes up big time it will show up on time, maybe a tad late, but not early.
