  • April 3rd Supply of iPads... is Gone



    Orders placed from today on are no longer being guaranteed an April 3rd delivery. Why? Apple is rapidly depleting their supply of iPads. Sources close to the situation have indicated that the initial supply for the April 3rd launch has been thoroughly decimated as customer demand has apparently outpaced the available supply.

    This morning, Apple posted updated website content indicating that new orders for all three models of the WiFi-only iPad models will be pushed back to April 12th. While the customers who first pre-ordered their iPad only have another week to wait for delivery, anyone who decides this weekend to go through with a purchase will now have another three weeks to wait.

    Although there was some confusion across the blogosphere this morning when the revised info from Apple was first discovered, the April 3rd delivery has not been changed for customer who have already ordered their tablet. The new April 12th delivery estimate only affects customer who order an iPad from this day forward. Through it all, however, Apple hasn't modified its tone about 3G enabled iPads. At present, they will still ship in late April.

    Yesterday on MMI, we reported that customers who pre-ordered their iPads have begun reporting their credit cards being charged for the purchase of the iPad - further evidence of the first wave of iPad deliveries running smoothly.

      It is a giant Iphone/Ipod.... same home key button. you can get wifi with 3G.... or wifi only...Hmmm sounds like iphone/ipod to me....
      Its not about 64gig......

      The fact that the max space is 64gig is silly.. what if I want to keep a few movies on my ipad.. what if i want to put movies and songs... 64gig can go pretty quickly... yes I can access my media from my IPHONE 1000 miles away as well even control my pc with my IPHONE....

      Its not about success of apple ...its their GREED... the cost of their products is just absurd.. from ipad to macbook... crazy..

      im just not that guy to rush and bow down to some greed filled steve jobs who wants to control.. key word "control" what customers are buying... to this very day you still cant do anything with your iphone UNLESS its jail broken...

      I encourage jailbreaking.. I encourage using the internet for many ideas... if its out there get it.. dont pay these guys for being greedy

      Good thing I finally got around to ordering mine last night. I woke up and saw this on the tech pages and thought almost missed an April 3rd release.

      Keep bashing about people buying this it really is making people not want to buy it anymore. "It cost to much, it doesn't do this or that, it is a giant ipod, ...." The list goes on but by the end of the day people will still buy it because that will be their decision. I am glad to see of all the reason you guys don't want one but it won't change my mind on wanting it.

      I got a iMac 27in i5. Yep paid 2k+ for it. But hey it was my money and my decision.

      hitman10 makes a good point, my mom would also enjoy one of these and i have been thinking about getting her one. She is computer illiterate but cannot put down my or my brothers iphone. So before people start digging into the ipad, just realize that they still can be useful. I am still very excited about the release because I cannot wait for the new iphone OS update

      I respect that.. yes you can do what you want with your money.... However those same ppl who spend how they want are the same ppl who are always wanting a deal or discount sooner or later..

      I build pcs/macs and build macs for my clients for a fraction of the cost and they get the same benefit..

      $2000+ can go to a home theater system or updating some items in my home.. thats the investment..

      what im saying is that ppl will spend their money.... but me along with others will have the last laugh as I always do especially when the iphone came out and I waited bc i knew the price would drop.. and it did... the same thing with this over priced ipad that does what? what exactly is this thing good for anyway... what can it do that my netbook cant do? besides being thin? besides having that apple logo on it... is that it???

      I just cant come to grips with spending that money.. apple must be losing something to continue to persuade the market that this is the latest and greatest... its an iphone/ipod touch... besides this silly 1ghz pro name something this ipad can do that my iphone or ipod cant do....

      so far they have messed up more then half of the deliveries. First they give it to the realestate agency I live above and ignore the apartment number, then they like to miss the days delivery and tell me that it is only an estimate and not a guaranteed date, the last one was they saw police tape on the side walk when it snowed and decided to say the building was closed. An apartment building with residents was closed. I hate fedex

      So I cant wait for all the reviews on the ipad that will give me a clearer picture of what this things shortcomings are ,and what Apple will need to do to fix them for the next version . I can be very patient for stuff like this , I waited 10 years before getting a DVD player after they first came out . Saved a bundle.

      Since I ordered mine last night it just says delivered on 4/3. Not shipped yet, but the case is showing 4/15. I like the looks of the case. FedEx usually delivers to my apartment at about 11 am. So hopefully I hear my phone because I am usually way passed out at that time.

      I would like to know as well. However, I don't think we'll get any more numbers till April 3rd to see how many were sold through pre orders and in store pick ups.

      I have my wifi and 3g on order, it says late April, I'm guessing that is the 3rd week of April. Well I am hoping, anyone actually know what Apple means by late April?
