Even though the delivery dates for some of the third-generation iPad models may have slipped to March 19th, there’s still some good news to be had. Per 9to5Mac, the first shipment notifications this week of ‘new iPads’ departing out of Chengdu in Western China. Chengdu, you’ll recall, was the site of a deadly Foxconn explosion on an iPad 2 assembly line last summer.

If you’ve received a shipment notification email from Apple regarding your iPad 3, please let us know.
