Default Apple sells out of iPads!

After the debate a while ago about the success of the new iPad I had to comment that they are now posting a new ship date. They have run out of stock on the April 3rd deliver iPads and the next available order is for April 12th now. Pretty impressive for a product that nobody has even physically touched yet!

If it has Apple on it, it automatically sells regardless.

I'll pass on this one, thanks.

Put a little apple on it, and the mindless fanboys are guaranteed to buy it.

This is basically how it works.

EDIT: Dammit I was beaten to it.

To be quite honest I think a lot of people will be disappointed, granted, I haven't toyed with one myself. They're going off what experienced in the iPod Touch and the iPhone. From what I've read and seen, the iPad is just a bigger iPod. You're essentially paying for a bigger screen.

I have a feeling that all the fanboys are going to go crazy saying it is a revolution in computing and such nonsense.

Apple fanboys piss me off.

Well I guess will see if it is just the fanboys or if it will really take off in a few weeks!

I think people will definitely buy it. It won't be a hit like the iPod Touch/iPhone, but it will bring them profit. I think they'll have better luck when they drop the prices. Having an iPod Touch with that big of a screen would be loads of fun, but I don't want to dish out $600 for it.

I am still waiting for someone to hack together an iPod touch with a physical hard drive. I find it ridiculous that apple charges so much for extra memory in their flash-based iPods. NAND flash does not cost that much.

I really want on of those samsung 240GB 1.8" drives in one. That would be pretty cool. 64GB is pathetic, apple.

Stephen Colbert has one already. So, one person has touched it.
