Good news for those customers who have pre-ordered iPads, apparently shipping notifications were sent out to some customers today. The iPads are shipping directly from China (as per usual) and no delivery dates are yet entered into the system, however it’s unlikely they’ll hit consumer’s hands before the official launch day (Saturday 3 April).
For new customers looking to pre-order, you’ll have to wait a little longer as they won’t ship until April 12. You could just wait in line at Apple retail stores on April 3 or another option is Best Buy that will stock the iPad in certain stores and will not be sold online. You’ll have to be quick though as rumour has it that only 15 will be available per store on launch day.
Update: Apple has also released some guided tour videos that explores the different functionality within the iPad. You can check out the videos over on the official site here.
