Apple iPhone 4 pre-orders to deliver June 23

Apple has sent out emails to at least some of its pre-order iPhone 4 customers notifying them that their phones will be arriving on June 23, a day ahead of the official launch. The email reads, “You recently received a Shipment Notification email from Apple advising you that your iPhone has shipped. This email is to confirm that your delivery will occur on June 23rd. Although Apple and FedEx tracking information may currently indicate a later date, you can check the FedEx website the morning of the June 23rd to track your package to your doorstep.” While it is uncharacteristic of Apple to deliver any devices ahead of the actual launch date, with the large number of pre-orders, it is possible that both Apple and AT&T want to spread out the burden on the latter’s activation servers as much as possible after last week’s pre-ordering snafu.

I have checked fedex site today, my estimated delivery time is 3 PM on June 23rd. That would be awesome, because it would save me activation headaches on the 24th.

Wow if it does deliver in the 23rd it will make a lot of people that got through the ordering process very happy, but will just make me more bitter since I spent all day trying to pre-order for home delivery and instead had to settle for in-store pick up.  Oh well, maybe the activation process may be less congested on the 24th at least.
