Having “launched” the iPad 2 over two weeks ago, on March 25, Apple has finally begun shipping units to UK customers who placed their orders online. We were beginning to think you’d forgotten about us, Apple.
Consumer guys Which? received an order update suggesting their iPad 2 had shipped on Saturday, with an estimated delivery date of today. However, they note that the date is “subject to change”.
It’s not yet clear how many orders have started shipping. Indeed, our Mobotorial Director, Emma, is still waiting patiently.
Apple continues to be characteristically shy about sales and production figures, but demand is clearly still outweighing supply. The estimated shipping time in the US, UK, Germany, France, Spain and Australia (to name the few that I checked) is 2-3 weeks. At its highest, the wait time was 4-5 weeks in the US.
