We’ve received word that all AppleCare reps are now receiving Lion training as well as getting their workstations upgraded to Lion.  The process began over the weekend and looks to be completing today.

Additionally, MacRumors reports that Apple Stores have begun receiving final copies of OS X Lion today.

We’ve also heard numerous reports that new Apple Store display materials have been arriving over the past week as well.

All signs point to an upcoming Lion release.

Apple is expected to release new MacBook Airs, a new Thunderbolt Cinema Display and perhaps some Minis.
