iPad 2 Shipping Times Blow Out To 4-5 Weeks

(View full size)

Its not even a week since the iPad 2 launch and the shipping times for online orders have slipped from the original 3-5 days as it was when it was released to 2-3 weeks 5 hours later, 3-4 weeks over the weekend and now to a whopping 4-5 weeks. This shipping time applies to all the various models available whether it be WiFi or 3G, Verizon or AT&T or whether it is 16GB or 64GB which effectively means if you order one today it would be late April before you get your hands on the iPad 2.

With the international launch of the iPad 2 on March 25th one must wonder whether Apple will, as they have done so frequently in the past, delay the international launch citing insufficient stock. At this stage it certainly isnt out of the realm of possibility.
