Just got an email from Apple saying that my iPad 3 has been shipped. I checked the Fedex tracking and it says shipping has been initiated with the following:

Anticipated ship date: March 7, 2012
Delivery Date: March 9, 2012.

Looks like ill be getting my iPad early :)

How is yours shipped when I still haven't received an email from Apple yet for confirmation of my purchase?

Anyone else didn't receive there order confirmation yet either?

I've gotten my conformation, shortly after the order actually.

But i feel OP is either a troll, or its just the order information going in to fedex

Wow, I got my confirmation but no shipment date. I was just thinking of the sheer number of iPads that Apple had to produce to fill pre-orders and supply simultaneous roll-outs in that many countries. I guess the rumor last week about them buying out all of the shipping airspace out of China was true indeed. Crazy the type of clout Apple has.

I just noticed that the delivery dates differ from fedex and the email i got. But either way, this one says March 14, even though it says that it will be delivered on the 16th.

Are you guys both blind or are you guys looking at the screenshot with your retina display?

Too bad that wasn't an option.
The picture is very small and unreadable, can not be viewed larger either when you click on it.

Wow, i didnt even notice that. They're usually shipped direct from China, but as Kobyh15 above was mentioning, Apple bought a whole bunch of freight space through DHL to get iPads in in time for launch. I'm skeptical as to whether they're already here in the states. Usually pre-orders are always shipped directly from China.

Nope, same issue on my end. Their screenshot shows up as a tiny thumbnail that isn't clickable to make bigger.
