Apple has made no bones about the difficulty they are having getting enough screens that pass their quality requirements. They are adding more and more countries that they sell to, and the demand does not let up. Creates a difficult problem for Apple, which most companies envy. It is not BS that they make this restriction, just bad luck for some. There are ways to get around the problem if you want it bad enough.
Thanks for all the replies guys.
Shipping is to Florida so I guess they are limiting all US stock now.
I have replied to them as I see they have already deducted the money from my account for the full order.

I ordered mine from the Apple store and then bought one at our local Best Buy.

I read a blog last week quoting two LG executives that LG can not keep up with screen demand and they would run dry by the end of summer. It's starting to look like end of summer is within site
Sounds wrong though. What if you were a business trying to deploy to a sales team? You need to order for each individual?
I would assume business account holders have different rules to consumers. I think the main blame are the touts who buy loads of "whatever" on launch day, and then hawk them on ebay at grossly inflated prices. Granted if people are stupid enough to pay it then so be it, but it's pretty crappy behaviour.
Oddly, I could go into either PC World or my local Apple store and pick up any 3G iPad from stock at the moment. (UK).
