If you were planning on getting an iPad on the March 16 launch date, you may have to wait a little bit longer. According on appleinsider.com, Apple has officially announced that the stock set aside for pre-orders has run out.
“Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased,” a company spokesperson said. “Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date.”
With the iPad 2 launch last year, Apple faced similar problems in their battle for retail dominance. The launch of the new iPad later this week is likely to break just as many sales records as its predecessor.
