iPad 2 pre-orders land with users despite reported delays

iPad 2 online orders start shipping

Pre-orders made online for the eagerly awaited Apple iPad 2 have started landing on doorsteps as shipping dates for the in demand tablet stretch to four to five weeks.

Having hit stores across the US last Friday, Apple has reported stock shortages of the iPad 2 that has lead to concerns of a delayed UK arrival. Those eager stateside iPad 2 owners who placed online orders shortly after sales started, however, are now reporting shipments arriving.

With the second-generation Apple tablet hitting US stores less than a week ago, with opening weekend sales rumoured to have topped the one million unit mark, Apple is reported to be managing inventory levels in stores and holding stocks over to ensure supplies the following day.

Officially unveiled earlier this month by Steve Jobs in San Francisco the Apple iPad 2 is scheduled to land in the UK next Friday, March 25th featuring the new ARM A5 dual-core processor, front and rear mounted cameras and a new slimmer, lighter form factor.
