iPad delayed until end of May

According to a brief statement from Apple headquarters in the US, international shipments of the iPad have been delayed until the end of May because of the popularity of the device since it went on sale at the beginning of April 2010 in the US.

According to a brief statement from Apple headquarters in the US, international shipments of the iPad have been delayed until the end of May because of the popularity of the device since it went on sale at the beginning of April 2010 in the US.

The company says that it has sold more than 500,000 iPads in America during its first week on sale and that demand greatly exceeds supply. Apple now intends to reveal international pricing of the iPad on Monday, 10 May, with pre-orders also beginning that day.

Somewhat incredulously the Cupertino-based company hopes that its fans "will be pleased to learn the reason [for the delay] — the iPad is a runaway success in the US thus far".
