Apple iPad pre-orders were sold out in the first two days after they were available online to be shipped and delivered this Friday, according to Apple’s online store.
Apple told USA Today on Sunday that “customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased.”
Now in order to be one of the first people to have the newest model of the iPad, which, by the way, is just being called ‘the new iPad’, you will have to wait in line at a brick and mortar store and hope they don’t sell out before they get to you.
Apple also said as of Monday any additional orders for the tablet would not be delivered until 2 to 3 weeks from now.
The newest iPad will range in price from $499 to $829 depending on the range of capabilities you desire. On the low end, you have a Wi-Fi only capable 16GB model to the higher end 64GB 4G models.
Apple also reports that anyone still interested in the iPad 2 can have it delivered in 1-3 business days at a reduced price of $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and $529 for the 3G 16GB model.
