    The iPad release date internationally has been delayed to May 10th due to an unpredicted number of Americans buying the iPad. The estimated number of units sold is 500,000 now which has put Apple in an unfortunate position, so, if you're like me it's going to be an even longer wait till we can get our hands on one of these devices.

    Wow. That would be terrible if you put the money down for an iPad on a certain day from Apple. Geeze, I'd be pissed.

    I'm quite lucky, I was going to buy it on release but then decided to wait a bit first. So I'm not too unhappy about the news but other will be

    As far as I know, the iPad isn't launching May 10th - that's when Apple will announce pricing, release date etc. It'll be launching late May.

    I am seriously pissed off with apple right now.

    First i was angry that USA gets them first but i was understanding at first so i didn't complain, then we had to wait an extra month with no news except 'coming late april', they never gave us a price so we have no idea how much to save up so i cant buy anything right now (im a college student its hard for some), now they make us wait an extra month!

    I expected better from Apple, they can't tell us one thing and then change it last minute.

    sad thing is, americans can still pre order or just buy in store if they have stock left -.-.

    Not an happy here in UK.

    Man that felt good to rant, i feel much better.

    i really f***ing hope that apple doesnt do this with the next iphone.

    now that i've had to wait so long for the iPad, i really don't want one. i saved up the money i thought i'd need for it in late march, but it didn't come, so i saved that same amount of money and i still had it for the late april release. But late may? supposing the iphone is released in july, i just don't have the time to buy an ipad, and save for the new iphone.

    sorry to say it apple, but no ipad for me.

    laters.
