Looks like Apple has already shipped the new iPad to eager new owners. The tablet has now arrived at FedEx locations throughout the US. You can see the email above, which informed us that the tablet had shipped out.
Interestingly, it seems that the iPads have already arrived at the locations, but Apple has requested that delivery be on launch date. This is likely why we heard rumors of iPads arriving at ports throughout the world about a week ahead of the announcement. Apple was trying to get things ready for quick shipping so that they’d be ready to go and arrive in time for the launch date.
The iPad is already waiting for us, but we can’t have it until the 16th. The wait is killing us. Oh well, Friday will come eventually, right?
