In a sign that the iPad has already been a massive success, despite few people having touched the device, the initial supply for pre-orders appears to have run out.

The US Apple Store website is now listing a shipping date of 12 April, more than a week after its launch date.

According to AppleInsider, Apple has pre-sold hundreds of thousands of iPads, with predictions that the tablet device will sell more than the 1.2 million units the iPhone sold in its first three months of availability.

While it’s unclear what these delays might mean on the ‘late April’ local shipping date, it looks like 30 April could become a best-case scenario.
