Apple lower shipping estimates for the iPad 2 to 1-3 business days.
Apple is now quickly getting closer to catch up with iPad 2 demand. End of June you still had to wait 1-2 weeks. Now the iPad 2 shipping estimate reads 1-3 business days. This is still not the standard 24h shipping time frame you get on most other products on the Apple Store. But if you are lucky your iPad 2 order will ship within 24 hours.
We are in the middle of summer and buying gadgets is not on the top of the list of most people. It still amazing that the iPad 2 is not completely readily available yet.
One of the reasons is that new iPad 2 costumer spread the word to their friends about the iPad and how they love it. You have to own and iPad to know why you like it. More people taking the plunge result into even more who get tempted to try it out. iPad sales are still rolling on a big snow ball effect.
Next week Apple will announce their quarterly earnings and it is expected that they will report record iPad sales for the quarter.
