    Apple does it like this: All their stock devices are drained and without a firmware. Before they ship, they get charged and a FW put on. So if you ordered after the release of 3.2.2, it will have 3.2.2 (coming directly from apple)

    I think my parents are going to be getting me an iPad for my birthday (Sept 12) and I plan on jailbreaking it. If they were to walk into the store in say a week or two, would the iPads have 3.2.2; or an earlier firmware if they buy it from an actual Apple store, not online.?

    It depends on how often they receive shipments of iPhones, and WHEN they are shipped. I called an Apple Store regarding iPad stock, and they said they receive shipments of almost every item, (i.e. iPod cases, Software CDs, iPods, iPads, Cables, and other things) but the number of each item is completely random, and what they ship is what they get. If the shipment was from a week after 3.2.2 was released, you can expect an iPhone 4 with 3.2.2.
