Thread: iPad Selling Out at Resellers, iPad 2 Announcement Soon?

  1. #1
    Default iPad Selling Out at Resellers, iPad 2 Announcement Soon?


    It's pretty much a given that we're gonna see the announcement of the next-generation iPad some time in the next month, but now evidence is beginning to mount that we could be hearing from Apple very soon.

    Even as it seems more and more likely that we'll get some new MacBook Pros this week, it looks like the iPad is now sold out at several major international retailers. This is a good indication that these resellers are not receiving more shipments from Apple, and is preparing to restock with the iPad 2.

    Carphone Warehouse in the UK was the first to announce that they were running low on iPad inventory. They are sold out of the 64 GB Wi-fi model, and completely sold-out of the 3G Model. Official iPad 3G carriers are now offering cheaper subsidized prices for the iPad. This includes both Europe Orange and T-Mobile, which means you can currently pick up an 3G iPad for 99.99.

    Other retailers are now joining in and announcing their low stock. Ingram Micro is selling out, and Future Shop in Canada is sold out now too. This is a very strong indication that the the new iPad will be coming to these major retailers soon, and that means we should hear an announcement from Apple quite soon.

    We probably don't need to tell MMi readers this, but if you're looking to buy an iPad, it is certainly a good idea to wait a couple weeks for an Apple announcement.

    I'm getting the first gen, doubt the second will be much of a second gen but rather more of an upgrade.

    You may be right, but if it's a dual core A8 I'll wait. If not and its just a camera with a few other little things, I won't.

    I'd never sell any Apple product of mine.
    I plan on keeping my iPod Video, MacBook Pro, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 forever! I regret selling my iPhone 2G and iPod Touch 2G
    Hopefully an iPhone 5 and iPad 2 will be added to my collection this year.*

    Wasn't iPad announced in January last year? February is nearly over.*

    I am going berserk. I really want an iPad, but obviously I'm not going to get a first-gen when it'll be obsolete in no time, to say nothing of my general apprehension when it comes to first-gen devices. I have searched Google News for "iPad 2" and checked the MMi blog for news diligently every single day for months just trying to eke out any tidbit of news I can find.

    Apple, please. Just have a press conference and reveal the damn thing. You're killing me.

    Sold my 1st Gen in preparation for the 2nd Gen...woohoo can't wait! I may even wait until the 4th quarter, as Apple is far from done with surprises this year. He who laughs last laughs loudest :]

    Great news, bring on the new one
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
