Apple’s new iPad pre-sales sold out worldwide in two days

“Judging from the rate at which the new iPad is disappearing from the 25 Apple online stores — U.S. and foreign — where it is available for pre-sale, demand seems to be at least as intense as it was for the iPad 2,” Phillip Elmer-Dewitt reports for Fortune.
“By Thursday morning, less than a day after it appeared on the U.S. store, ship dates for the 16 GB models had slipped from one day to three,” P.E.D. reports. “By Friday, according to several sources, ship dates for all models in all 25 countries had slipped to anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks.”

P.E.D. reports, “We’ll get a better sense of the level of demand when lines start to form outside the Apple Stores next week. And if sales are particularly strong, we may get a press release from Apple PR the following Monday.”
