iPad Wi-Fi + 3G orders preparing to ship!

Michael wrote in to tell us (and show us, see above) that his iPad Wi-Fi + 3G order was finally prepared to ship, and since Apple has previously confirmed they'd deliver on April 30, we'd say it's none too soon.

Wi-Fi only iPads arrived on April 3 in the US while international iPad Wi-Fi and iPad Wi-Fi + 3G are set for pre-order on May 10 and delivery "late May" (which we'll take to mean May 31 unless pleasantly surprised otherwise).

Anyone else get a notice? Anyone get an actual confirmed shipment and tracking number yet?
