With the upcoming Friday – the day of the official release of the latest iPad, Apple are in a funny situation. The iPads intended for every single country are sold out and there will be no shipments for the next couple of weeks, at least.
USA, Canada, Australia, France, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Hong Kong and the U.K. – all of these countries have different delay problems. For example, Hong Kong’s customers don’t have any information about the possible future dates of distribution.
The initial demand is actually not surprising. Almost the same situation can be seen as we look back at the last year’s iPad 2 delay. The timespan varied in many places and Apple admitted its inability to satisfy the demands. Analysts have been expecting the problem happening again. It turns out that the higher-resolution screen is the key factor of the low production output, which eventually caused the supply challenge.
As a result of these supply problems, the benefits will go to those who offer reselling, like eBay (with more than double prices), Best Buy and other retail stores.
