First Online iPad 2 Orders ship In Germany, Earlier as expected

First Online iPad 2 Orders ship In Germany, Earlier as expected

iPad 2 ships exactly 2 weeks after launch. The Shipping duration was cut from 11 days to 6 days.

Apple launched the sale of the iPad 2 in many European countries on March 25th. I had my iPad 2 order filed in the early morning hours on that day at the Apple Online Store. As reported, online orders immediately had a 2-3 weeks shipping delay on them. My order confirmation said that my 32GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 would ship on April 15th and arrive on April 26th. An hour ago I got an email that said my iPad 2 has been shipped and that I can expect delivery on April 14th or earlier. That is next week, I am excited.

Apple is known for giving customers pessimistic shipping dates. iPad 2 tablets ordered early on the European launch date ship with an exactly two week delay. the initial shipping duration was cut by 5 days. This pessimistic shipping time exception management is great, because I now feel happy. I was very, very disappointed on launch day because I was interrupting my sleep to order the iPad 2. Like many others, I was very disappointed to find out that I had to wait 2-3 weeks to get the magic tablet. Apple now appears positive to me again, but in reality they just fooled me.

About the Apple iPad:
Apple launched the first iPad on April 3rd 2010. Until the iPad came along Tablets never caught on. The iPad was a runaway success at launch that even surprised Apple. The company had to postpone the international launch of the iPad to satisfy demand in the United States.

The original iPad surprised everyone with a low entry price of $499. This low price proved to be the major hurdle for competitors trying offer a similar performing tablet at the same price.

Features of the first generation iPad include 1GHz A4 CPU, PowerVR SGX 535 GPU, 9.7-inch LED-backlit touchscreen display with IPS technology, 10 hour battery life, 16GB to 64GB Storage options, 256MB RAM, 802.11n Wi-fi and 3G option. 

The original iPad has a weight of 1.5 pounds and it measures 9.56x7.47x.5 inches. The first iPad owners had to wait a very long time for multi-tasking until iOS 4.2 was released in November 2010. iPhone owners had that update months earlier.

Apple started selling the iPad 2 on March 11th in the United States. The new iPad 2 is about 1/3rd thinner than the first iPad and adds two cameras. Other new features of the iPad 2 include the new faster dual-core A5 CPU and the 9x faster PowerVR SGX543MP GPU. Measurements of the iPad 2 are 9.5x7.31x0.34 inches and the weight is 1.33 pounds. The iPad 2 is available in the United States as Wi-Fi only, AT&T 3G and new as a Verizon 3G version. Additionally the iPad 2011 is available in black and in white. The demand for the iPad 2 at launch led to long lines in stores even weeks after the sales started. Online orders of the iPad 2 take about one month to ship.

The prices for the Apple iPad models are $499 (US) for the 16GB model, $599 (US) for the 32GB model, $699 (US) for the 64GB model. The Wi-Fi + 3G iPad models will be available in April in the US and selected countries for a suggested retail price of $629 (US) for the 16GB model, $729 (US) for the 32GB model and $829 (US) for the 64GB model.

More important for the success of the iPad is the software. iOS still outshines other Tablet OSes in terms of ease of use. The Apple eco-system (iTunes) with music, movies and apps completes the experience that draws millions of consumers to the iPad. Get the latest iPad news in our Apple Hub.
