Apple Says New iPad Demand is ‘Off the Charts’

Apple’s latest iPad was greatly anticipated and the launch day stock sold out only two days after pre-orders began. With its astounding new Retina display and rapid 4G LTE speeds, customers have been flocking to the device over any older iPad or Android tablet. (The Retina display alone trumps every Android tablet that exists right now in resolution.) Apple yesterday told USA Today that the call for this new iPad was “off the charts,” asserting that the launch day stock had completely sold out — as previously mentioned — and they will continue to sell iPads to receive them on an estimated delivery date…

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

The current batch of new iPads is shipping on March 19th with the set arrival date of the 23rd or week of the 26th. Apple also said that they would be releasing the device in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands on the same day as the US, making this their biggest launch day ever — internationally.
