Just three days after the official pre-launch in Australia, Apple have already started changing estimated ship dates for NEW iPad orders to the 7th of June.
This appears to indicate stock reserved for pre-order sales in the first week of delivery have already sold out.
Australian consumer decisions appear to be mirroring those of the USA, where sales of iPad hit 1 million within it’s first month on sale.
Various Technology publications reported on the change to estimated ship dates yesterday. Some appeared to agree it indicated a successful launch while allowing for the fact it may be caused by stocking issues.
Conversely one publisher who previously shared opinion pieces telling us iPad will fail seemed to prefer to focus on reporting the apparent success in negative terms. Even indicating that orders already taken were being delayed.
it appears that those who have pre-ordered iPads may have a little longer to wait.
From my understanding, contacting those whose iPad orders were taken in the first couple of days, their iPads were still estimated to be delivered on official launch date of the 28th May
