Last week, we reported on a tip that one of our Apple sources provided us: Apple was planning to ramp up shipments of iPhone and iPad orders to those currently on waiting lists. We’ve been receiving tips all morning saying that customers who were on these waiting lists — not expecting to receive their items for weeks — have started getting notification that their iPads or iPhones will arrive in a few days. Additionally, a close friend of mine ordered an iPad with an estimated ship date of August 3rd, and the iPad was delivered today. Who else is finding the same thing?
