iPad pre-orders get shipping reference, March 16 arrival date

We'd barely put down our liveblog quill and Apple's already cranking out new iPads to those that have pre-ordered. We've had several readers offer up information on their orders, including some UPS tracking numbers. These currently put the Retina Display tablet on Chinese shores, ready for delivery next week. All of our tipsters' iPads are still scheduled to arrive on March 16th -- the official launch date.
