I know people usually get the items before launch date.

This has already been discussed a bit here. People who have had their iPads shipped will see a "future delivery requested by shipper" notice on the tracking info once the package hits the FedEx sorting center. Unless a screwup happens, it's doubtful you'll get your iPad prior to Friday.

What do you want us to tell you here? Lol. You asked us if your iPad will arrive before Friday, but you clearly know that people get items before the launch date.

And to clarify, it's not usually. That implies that it's a regular occurrence. It happens, yes, but don't hold your breath expecting it.

I'll tell you a good response I read by a user here. Expect it on Friday; if it arrives earlier, all the better. But don't expect it earlier. Yes, it happens, but don't expect it to happen to you.

I bought an iPhone 4s when it came out and received a shipment notice a week before the delivery date so excitingly, I started tracking it. My phone went from Ontario, CA (which is 2 hours away from where I live) all the way to Virginia (or somewhere around there), spent a couple of nights there and then, it came back the morning of the delivery date.
So yeah, try not to get your hopes up. However, congrats if you do get it early :)
