So Apple finally released the iPad 2 last Friday both in stores and online. With thousands of people hurrying to buy one for themselves, all the stocks were immediately sold out (not a surprise).
On Apple’s US Online Store, the shipping delay started at just 3 – 5 days, which was quickly updated to 2 – 3 weeks the following day and now — it’s up to 3-4 weeks delay when you order online.
A friend in the US lined up close to 6 hours in one branch of Best Buy (where stocks were also limited). It’s also possible people are hoarding stocks (despite Apple’s policy of only 2 per buyer limit) to sell on eBay or bring home to other countries and sell for double the price. I’m still waiting for mine which will hopefully arrive on the 25th.
Just curious is anybody here also bought or is thinking of getting one (even from non-legit sources). I reckon Greenhills will be swarming with iPad 2’s in a week or two.
