Reuters is reporting that an analyst from Wedbush Securities said “We would not be surprised to see Apple sell closer to 1 million iPad 2’s in the opening weekend.” This is amazing for Apple since it took 28 days for the first iPad to reach 1 million sales. The iPad 2 went on sale at 5PM locally at Apple stores, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Verizon Wireless and AT&T stores. Thousands and thousands of people lined up across the country to get their hands on one.
There have been numerous reports that every store sold out of iPads by Saturday afternoon and haven’t received any more shipments yet. The day it launched Apple quickly changed the shipping status to a 2-3 week delay and now it’s at 3 – 4 weeks. People are reporting that orders are with being canceled online or some people are getting shipped notices. Some people are lining up at the Apple stores every morning is hopes that they received a shipment.
If you don’t want to wait you can head down to your local Best Buy and drop a $100 deposit and get notified when one comes in for you, or you can do like me and just wait :(
