Apple Delays International Launch for iPad

Apple's new iPad is selling so well, the company has been forced to delay the overseas launch of the iPad by about a month. For one country that won't mean much, since the device has been banned. Which country did it and why? Enterprise Mobile Today knows.


It is possible to be too successful for one's own good, and in the case of the Apple iPad, that is translating into a product shortage that will delay the worldwide launch of the much-hyped tablet.

Having delivered 500,000 devices in the first week of availability, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) was forced this week to concede it cannot deliver enough to match worldwide demand.

"Demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad. We have also taken a large number of pre-orders for iPad 3G models for delivery by the end of April," the company said in a statement.
