An Apple representative has told CNET today that the technology giant has sold out of it’s batch of online preorder supply of new iPads, announced last Wednesday at a media event in San Francisco. Preordering the iPad online has given many customers shipping dates past the March 16th retail store launch of the device. People in Europe have seen ship dates as far ahead as 2 to 3 weeks, frustrating many of them.
“Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased,” an Apple representative told CNET. “Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date. Beginning Friday, March 16, the new iPad will be available for purchase at Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers on a first come, first-served basis.”
The new iPad comes in a WiFi variant with 16, 32, and 64GB priced at $499.99, $599.99, and $699.99 respectively. If you opt for the 4G LTE model on AT&T or Verizon, it’ll run you $629.99, $729.99, and $829.99 respectively. For more info on the new iPad, check out the roundup I posted Wednesday.
