iPad selling like hot cakes

It was over a presentation last Thursday when a business partner who got his iPad from the States used it for the presentation. I immediately fell in love with it! It was cool, the colors are rich and the picture quality is good and very user-friendly touchscreen too.

Unfortunately for people like me who do not have business trips to the USA, I have no choice but to wait for it until Apple launched it in Asia sometime on July 10, and that is only in Singapore together with 9 other countries.

I also read that iPad is selling fast in US with sales hitting the 200K mark per week and outsold Macs estimated at 110K units.

iPad Still Selling Like Crazy, Sold-Out at Most Apple Stores

According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, in most of Apple’s retail stores in the U.S. the iPad is either sold-out or in very limited supply, especially the 3G model.
Furthermore, Apple’s online store now lists that iPad is shipping in 7-10 days (previously it was 5-7) days, which also indicates that Apple is selling more iPads than it anticipated.
“Seventy-four percent of the stores we checked were completely sold out of all iPad models, 26 percent had some WiFi models in stock, and no stores had any 3G models available,” Munster claims.
iPad sales have been phenomenal from the very beginning. Earlier this month, Apple announced it had sold one million iPads. On May 28, iPad is slated to begin shipping in European countries. The question is: Will Apple have enough iPads to satisfy the demand?
