    Just a little over a week since shipping estimates for new Retina MacBook Pro orders through Apple's online store saw their first improvement from 3-4 weeks to 2-3 weeks, timeframes have again been reduced. As with the previous improvement, the change has first appeared in Apple's Asia-Pacific markets, which have seen shipping estimates drop to 1-2 weeks.

    Shipping estimates in Apple's other main distribution regions of the Americas and Europe/Middle East/Africa are holding steady at 2-3 weeks for the time being, but they will almost certainly see similar drops to the 1-2 week timeframe in the very near future.

    Shipping estimates for the Retina MacBook Pro peaked at 3-4 weeks roughly 36 hours after the models were unveiled at last month's Worldwide Developers Conference, with estimates remaining at that level until last week's drop to 2-3 weeks. Availability at other online and brick-and-mortar retailers is also improving, in many cases beating Apple's online store estimates for stock models, but the company's online store is the primary source for customized orders.

    Update: Estimates in Apple's online stores in the Americas have also moved to 1-2 weeks.

    Update 2: Apple's European stores have now also seen improvement to 1-2 weeks.

    Sweeeeeeeet!

    Anyone know though if Apple Stores carry them pretty well stocked, and if they ever happen to carry 16GB versions of the low-end just for the chance someone might want one?

    Not sure what you're getting at. The picture you posted is the US store, and the one in the OP is the Asia store, because the shipping time change first occurred there.

    You can order right now! Except they named it the iPhone 4S. Were you not informed?

    No, they are catching up with demand. If no one was buying them, there wouldn't be a delay in ship times.

    Considering their move in naming schemes, it would look like it's more likely to be 'The New iPhone'… so pot kettle black :p

    Your wrong. No way apple would ever do iPhone again just because the first iPhone was named "iPhone". How would people know the difference between the first iPhone and the iPhone 5?

    It's different for the lower dissociated hardware. I believe that the iPhone must be numerically named to keeps sales up and confusion down. Example, if Sony named the PS Vita the PSP 2 instead the sales surely would have been greater.

    They're probably being replenished with the Macs that people have returned due to the massive display lag.
