the earliest possible date? You've missed
it. Take a look at the U.S. Apple Online
Store and you'll see that shipping estimates are
now listed as "1 to 2 weeks." Before the pre-order
stock for launch day delivery was sold out, the site
stated that iPhones would be delivered on launch
day, Friday, October 14.
