Apple: iPad Pre-orders Sell Out, Demand ‘off the Charts’

Apple’s latest generation of the iPad is selling like hot cakes! Just yesterday, we reported that Apple had sold out of launch day iPad supplies in the U.S.. A similar effect was occurring in worldwide stores too. Today, Apple has officially acknowledged that iPad stock available for pre-orders are now sold out.

“Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased,” a company spokesperson said. “Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date.”

In addition, the company says that the customer response to the device has been “off the charts”, reports USA Today. Just within two days of Apple announcing the new iPad, orders of the iPad had already been pushed back from this Friday’s launch day delivery to a ship date of March 19th. Due to the tremendous response the device has received, Apple is expected to set a new sales records later this week when the devices launches. Color me surprised if they don’t.

When was the last time any Android tablet manufacturers could claim the same? Oh, and so much for the people that said it wouldn’t sell.
