Apparently those iPad gadgets are still selling like hotcakes because the company responsible for manufacturing the device's display can't do it quickly enough to meet demand.
Wired has quoted the man in charge of LG's display division, Kwon Young-Soo, as saying, "Apple may have to delay launches of the iPad for some countries due to tight component supplies and strong demand. We are considering increasing production lines for iPad products but overall supply is likely to remain tight until early next year."

The iPad is raking in sales as it remains the only device of its kind on the market. However, other rivals are stepping in, with plans to bring out other multimedia tablets based on Google's Android platform and HP's WebOS operating system, which will be significantly less expensive that the iPad.

Until then, Apple will continue to sell well. The iPad also has the luxury of not having any PR blowouts like the iPhone 4's antenna troubles. Millions of iPads have been sold since the device first went on sale earlier this summer and demand has skyrocketed ever since it became available internationally.
