Dramatic Improvement in iPad Shipping Times
If you're yet to order an iPad, there's an excellent possibility you'll be sparred much of the lag time a majority of tablet buyers experienced earlier this year when the Apple device first went on sale. Since April, there have been reports of some folks having to wait days if not weeks to get their iPad. But now it seems Apple has reconciled supply with demand. And, as a result, getting an iPad via online order should now be pretty seamless.
From CNN Money:
On Saturday, 170 days after Apple began taking pre-orders for the iPad, supply officially caught up to demand, at least on Apple.com. Orders placed today now ship within 24 hours, like any other Apple product except the iPhone.
During its first three months of sales, Apple moved better than 3 million units and was repeatedly forced to admit to depleted inventories and delay debut dates, particularly in overseas markets.

Now if only the iPhone 4 shipment time could improve...

I don't think iPhone 4 shipment will catch up till after the holiday season.

You are probably right
08-29-2010, 04:22 PM #10
I agree, the iPhone 4 won't even start to catch up till after the holidy season.

Apple get your money to build the products, no need to use their own capital to build.

its much better to go to the Apple store (if there's one in your city) when the iPhone 4 came out., my wife was one of the lucky few to get hers on launch day, I wanted to wait for the white one. after updating my 3G to 4.0 and slowing my device down to uselessness., I decided to get the i4 in black. lo and behold, I went back to the AT&T retail store to get it and they were sold out., 6 weeks later I was still waiting.
I canceled my order and went to the Apple store SoHo where they had tons of i4's and iPads in stock.

Yeh I realised the shipping times for iPad had reduced dramatically two days ago in the UK store.
I'm still waiting on an iPad 2 or use the iPad 2 money for an XFX ATI Radeon 5970 for my PC build.....

Why wouldn't people just buy an iPad in a store? if the wait time was three weeks. My local best buy has always had a Ton of them
