New iPad Shipment Moved To March 19

The new iPad was set to ship on March 16, but high volume of pre-orders has made Apple decide to move the shipping date of new orders to March 19.

This announcement applies to all iPad models, that's for all capacities and colors. However, those who can't wait a few more days can definitely go to Apple Stores on Friday.

Those who plan to get the new iPad through Verizon and AT&T for the 4G LTE connectivity data package would have to likewise wait, as both companies are just collating emails from customers, for future advise. The same also goes for retail store Best Buy, who are also accepting pre-orders.

This news is actually not that surprising, it can be remembered that the iPad 2 last year had around 4-5 weeks delay. It was the "mother of all backlogs", as Tim Cook called last year's shipping issue.
