Buyers of the iPad 2 from the Apple online store who originally received projected shipping dates should be happy to know that these orders have begun shipping. Users via Twitter are reporting this, with some ordering on launch day.

iPad 2 ordering opened with 3-5 day shipping times, but that quickly turned to 2-3 weeks, then 3-4 weeks, and now 4-5 weeks. Be sure to let us know if yours is getting shipped early, too.
