New iPad Pre-Orders Slip to ‘2-3 Weeks’

New iPad Pre-Orders Slip to ‘2-3 Weeks’

After confirming this morning that initial pre-orders for the new iPad are now sold out, Apple is now listing all new orders for the device as shipping in 2-3 weeks, leaving those who still want an iPad on launch day to wait in long lines on Friday with everyone else.

Pre-orders for the new device began just last Wednesday, but shipping estimates slipped quickly, and just two days after pre-orders began, the shipping estimate had increased to 1-2 weeks for all models. These ever-increasing shipping delays just days after the new iPad’s announcement suggests extraordinarily high demand for Apple’s new tablets.

Some fans have already begun lining up for Apple’s new tablet, and if you haven’t preordered and still want to snap one up on launch day, you’d be well advised to do the same.
