    Default New iPad Orders Now Require Three Weeks to Ship


    New orders placed online for Apple's third generation tablet will take at least three weeks to ship.

    If you didn't place your preorder for the new iPad within the first 48 hours, you may now have to wait weeks after the device launches this Friday to get your hands on one.

    As of this writing, new orders placed through Apple's online storefront are showing a shipping estimate of two to three on those orders. This shipping delay is across all models. And according to some analysts who have weighed in on the matter, the swift depletion of inventory is a compelling sign of huge sales so far.

    It's also, of course, a telling indication of how lengthy shipping estimates could grow if demand continues to outpace supply by such a wide margin. Although extended shipping estimates are nothing new after Apple product launches, the speed at which these shipping estimates are growing farther out suggests that the third-gen iPad is going to be difficult to come by for some folks in the months ahead.

    "Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased," a spokesperson for Apple said in response to the aforementioned sales success. "Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date."

    I ordered my iPad just 38 hours after the keynote ended and by then it was 2-3 weeks shipping. Tracking my order on Apple's site says that it will be delivered on April the 2nd. Garrr....

    They are all sold out. There is no jailbreak yet and I don't find the stock stuff worth it.

    I persisted and got my order in Wednesday afternoon (3-4 hours after keynote)...then the next day cancelled it and quickly ordered the same config except with Verizon instead of AT&T...30 hours after keynote. A co-worker ordered hers Wednesday and we both got our "Order Shipped" emails today, so even 30 hours after the event there was time. Though I suppose the model makes a difference. Have been waiting since iPad 1st gen for the higher resolution screen to buy one.

    I'm thinking some, or lots, will arrive Thursday, maybe even Wednesday. Why? Because they are shipping them--in my case--from SoCal to NorCal starting this (Monday) afternoon. It doesn't take 4 days to get stuff up here from SoCal by FedEx. The folks in SoCal for sure should get theirs Wednesday, I'm hoping for Thursday for mine (greater Sacramento area).

    Despite the wait time, I'll still put my order in. I'm not in a big rush to get it. Hopefully the iPad and my passport comes at the same time. Then I can fly to Tokyo and won't be bored!

    Not much of a big improvement. Apple does this every time. Adds a couple new features uses old hardware and it sells like hot cakes. Welcome to 2010 Apple.

    Oh, you want to know what the official name is. That's it: "new iPad".

    Increasing the pixels 4x is a big improvement alone. Then add new cpu, 4 gpus, slightly enlarged case to hold enlarged battery (same life though), LTE...yeah it's a big improvement for just one year. Far from old hardware. Sounds like you can't afford one. Read this.
