First round of iPads sold out, new pre-orders ship April 12th

Hope you got your iPad already pre-ordered because Apple has pushed back the shipping date for all new orders to April 12th. It’s really not that surprising seeing as there have been reports stating Apple may already have 500,000 iPads in the bag. It might be quicker at this point to start camping Apple Stores or Best Buy if you *must* have an iPad the moment it’s released. We know that retail outlets will at least have a small supply on April 3 to serve the Apple faithful.

This only applies to the WiFi iPad, actually. The 3G flavor doesn’t come out until later in April anyway and those haven’t seen shipping delays just yet. Although they could! So quick, Appletards, give Steve Jobs your credit card number and reserve your place in the lemmings line.
