iPod touch 4 beginning to ship

TiPb readers are letting us know that they're receiving shipment notifications from Apple for iPod touch 4. Made available for pre-order last Wednesday following Apple's 2010 special music event, iPod touch 4 brings Retina Display (though perhaps without the same IPS panel?), FaceTime, 720p video (though only .7mp stills), and other iPhone 4-like features to its non-phone counterpart.

Have you gotten your shipment notification yet? Let us know which model you ordered, when you placed your order, and what date you expect it and we'll keep track in comments.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]
