Following the announcement of the new iPad last week, everybody wants the new tablet.
The new tablet from Apple has sports 4G LTE technology, a retina display, a more efficient processing chip, and a better camera.
Within hours of the announcement, Apple had permitted pre-orders for the new iPad on their website. In the past few days, shipping dates for some pre-orders have gradually slipped. Citing an Apple spokeswoman, demand has been, “off the charts”:

The high demand for the new iPad should not surprise anyone as the New iPad has almost everything people wanted to see being implemented into Apple’s tablet. It is expected to hit the stores on 16 March 2012.
Apple undoubtedly took necessary precautions to help prepare for extraordinary demand for the New iPad and in turn, at the event, they said that they would be making the new iPad available internationally very quickly. By doing this, Apple took a hit on supply in the larger countries, like the United States, because now they have less to ship as they distribute them to smaller countries. One should not be surprised if the New iPad breaks the international records held by iPhone 4S and iPad 2 in terms of sales.
Given the fact that many people are still discovering the entertainment and usefulness value of Apple’s iPad, it is no doubt that the latest tablet from Apple will see increasingly high demand and large sales throughout the year. The iPad 2 demonstrated how a tablet computer can prove useful in many different work environments from education, to airplane cockpits, to hospitals and much more.
