Apple has now sold out of its launch day pre-order stock of all six Wi-Fi models in its online store, with new pre-orders currently being quoted shipping estimates of one week. The company's retail stores should still have stock available beginning at 8:00 AM on Friday for those still interested in obtaining one on launch day.
Wi-Fi fourth-generation iPad models with one-week shipping estimates
iPad mini pre-orders are continuing to hold at two-week shipping estimates, while those who were able to get their launch-day orders in are monitoring delivery progress. Those who ordered iPad mini Smart Covers have been seeing their accessories delivered yesterday and today, while MacRumors forum members have been following progress of the devices themselves in an extensive thread.
While Apple's official online order status pages generally still show iPad mini pre-orders as "Preparing for Shipment", most of the orders are actually already en route. Some users have had success locating their packages by searching FedEx tracking using their phone numbers as references, while others have had success by looking up the serial numbers of their devices and using those as references to track via UPS.

I'm sure Apple are quaking in their boots after reading that.
