I will back you up on this.. They are very good at stating shipping/Wait time as it's standard on their site. The user was just probably too excited to pay attention.Originally Posted by Trky
Nice post, keep them coming!!..
I have never had a problem with ordering from the Apple site. The first iPad was able to be ordered long before it was released and cards were not charged until the merchandise shipped. IMHO, the iPad is worth the wait. Congratulations to second generation owners--I will keep my original for now because it fascinates me today as much as it did last year and it's birthday is coming up in a few weeks. Last April 3 was so exciting.

Interesting statistic if true. Add on the original iPad owners like me who will be buying and it looks like apple have another hit on their hands.
I for one would be pleased as it will mean more encouragement for apple to keep improving the device and more encouragement for developers to improve their software.
I'm not surprised by it really - I have friends and colleagues who've been waiting 6 months for the release of the iPad2 before buying one; just because they know how Apple work!
I think you would see a similar statistic if you looked at the number of iphone4 users buying the iPhone 5 compared to 3G, 3GS, and new iPhone owners. I get the impression that skipping generations has become programmed into most Apple consumers now!
Yes! I prefer to skip a generation because it seems that more significant changes, IMO, occur every other year. That's how I upgrade all my Apple products (except my ColorWare iPod classic) and I don't plan to deviate from that unless something mind blowing happens to change my mind. Let's see what iPad 3 delivers.Originally Posted by Prasius
