  • Apple's New iPad Preorders Officially Sold Out


    Following the announcement of the new iPad last week at Apple’s special event, the crowd went wild for the new game-changing tablet, which sports 4G LTE technology, a retina display, a better processing chip, and a better camera. Within hours of the announcement, Apple permitted pre-orders for the new iPad on their Web site. In the past few days, we have watched as shipping dates for some pre-orders have gradually slipped. Citing an Apple spokeswoman, demand has been, "off the charts":

    The high demand for the new iPad is not surprising because it encompasses almost everything people wanted to see implemented into Apple's tablet. It’s a great milestone for Apple and you’d better believe it is lining Apple’s pockets.

    Apple undoubtedly took necessary precautions to help prepare for extraordinary demand and in turn, at the event, they told us they would be making the new iPad available internationally very quickly. Doing this, Apple took a hit on supply in the larger countries, like the United States, because now they have less to ship as they distribute them to smaller countries, which didn’t have so much luck getting the iPad 2 on a timely fashion.

    With many people still discovering the entertainment and usefulness value of Apple’s iPad, it’s no doubt that the tablet will see increasingly high demand and large sales throughout the year. The iPad 2 helped illustrate how a tablet computer can prove useful in many different work environments from education, to airplane cockpits, to hospitals and much more.

      I used to feel the same way when I first got the original iPhone. But since then, I've found myself not missing flash at all. I can't even come up with a good reason to have it any more.

      That happened to me last year. It was hard to rectify, but I could have sold it for $50.00 more right at the store. Oh well…

      Agreed, even android is accepting flash is dead now... Guy is a total pleb... I had a iPhone from 2g to 3GS then I joined the android bandwagon for 2 years, I was so pro android, but now I admit that apple products just really piss all over android. iCloud and Siri was the killer blow. Now I'm a proud owner of an iPhone 4s and a preorderer of the new beastly iPad. I have never been as happy with my devices as when I moved back to apple from android.

      I was in the same boat was u. Had iPhone 2g when it first came out loved it. Then wanted to try something new so I jumped on a tilt 2. I had flashed and running custom roms and everything. Still sucked. Went back to my iPhone. Then switched to the captivate. Had that rooted and running custom roms as well. I liked and android is cool but I had to get the IP4. Never gonna look back. Was close on getting the sgs2 and nexus s. but I know for a fact I will end up going back to apple. I don't care what ppl but apple is dominating on everything.

      Care to share how apple products "piss" all over android? You think iCloud and Siri was the killer blow Android has both, a cloud service and voice commands. Something both Apple and Google have.

      You didn't know? The iPad comes with a floppy disk that contains an installable version of Flash and a free trial of AOL 3.0. Enjoy!

      In other words, Apple is doing what it's always done. Limit pre-order units to artificially create demand. The sheep will still flock.

      Hmmm interesting theory... This seems more like a classic supply and demand scenario to me. Oh well.
