The update suggests that Apple has completely sold out of its initial launch run of iPads in both the Wi-Fi and 3G model. Both iPads are scheduled to launch on May 28, and those who were among the first to secure preorders should see the device on launch date. Even with the international price adjustments
Apple only began accepting preorders from the 9 international launch countries eariler this week. Updates to Apple's online stores in the U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Spain and Italy on Tuesday now all reflect a new ship date of June 7 for the latest preorders. That's all nine countries where the iPad will launch on May 28.
The international launch of the iPad was originally scheduled for late April, but Apple delayed it by a month due to stronger than expected demand of the device in the U.S. Late preorders in the U.S. also had a short wait, as those who ordered toward the end of March didn't receive the hardware until April 12. The iPad formally launched in the U.S. on April 3, and Apple sold more than 300,000 on the first day.
