Apple has been successful in producing iPads in sufficient volume so that you can now expect yours to ship in 24 hours if you were to order one online today. 

There are also good levels of inventory at BestBuy and FutureShop stores as well as at your local Apple Store.  It would still be our recommendation that your buy the 64GB Wifi Only model if you already have an iPhone for this reason.
