    I got a text message from Apple Online Store saying "Shipment Wxxxxxxxx has been dispatched.Expect delivery on or before 16-03-2012.Track your order at http://store.apple.com/uk/orderstatus. " does that means early preorders customers can get their new iPad before the official launch date ??? I'm in the UK btw.

    It said expect delivery 16-03-2012. Thats nothing earlier. Apple will asign carrier to hold the shipment until the 16th.

    There is already a major thread on the topic so no real need to start another one.

    That said its highly unlikely you will get your iPad before the 16th although there is a slim chance it may get delivered on the 15th. Apple will have instructed all it's shipping partners to put a hold on them and deliver them on the 16th.
