Apple iPad initial pre-orders sold out

Apple iPad initial pre-orders sold out

The latest Apple iPad is launched here in the UK on Friday and reports suggest that it is already sold out before it actually arrives! If you were to order an iPad today it is going to take three weeks before it arrives with you and as things are at the moment, this delay could well extend beyond the three weeks.

From reports that we are receiving from America, customers in Canada and America are being told iPad pre-orders will ship on March 19th; this is three days after the new iPad goes on sale. Apple’s online stores in France, Germany, Switzerland and Japan are also reporting delays of up to three weeks. This is the first time that Apple has launched a new iPad in Britain on the same day that it goes on sale in the US. Although the company has restricted orders to two iPads per person, shortages are going to be inevitable. The delays are of course for online orders so you can expect to see the usual long queues outside Apple stores on Friday.
