Just as Apple is expanding the availability of its latest tablet yet again, it is also reducing shipping estimates in a number of markets. Now, Apple is citing 5-7 business days for new orders instead of the 1-2 week estimate that has been in place for the past month. The new 5-7 business day estimates appear to be in effect in Apple’s North American and Asia/Pacific distribution channels,. However, at the moment, they have not made their way to the company’s European channel, where estimates remain at 1-2 weeks.
