With iPad 2 estimated ship times pushed to 3-4 weeks in the US, it appears iPad 2 stock is in short supply. According to Gene Munster’s team at Piper Jaffray, the iPad 2 cannot be found in stores, in particular the NY region where they were asking around.
What’s interesting to note is the team once again went on the ground and interviewed almost 250 would-be iPad 2 owners. Their findings revealed that 70% of people in line were first time iPad buyers, and that 60% of them owned an iPhone.
Apple is like a gateway drug–once you get one shiny toy, you can’t resist but stay loyal and plunge deeper with more purchases. Will the iPad 2 shortage in the US affect the launch in other countries, such as Canada? We can only hope that iPad 2 will not be delayed in Canada like it was last year.
Will iPad 2 be your first iPad? Do you own an iPhone?
