Finally, right? After almost four months of availability, the iPad 2 is now available to order online with shipping times of only 3-5 business days. I think we can officially say the iPad 2 supply crisis is over.
That might seem like a long time for the anxious, but to put 3-5 business days in perspective, that’s how long shipping times mere seconds after the order page went up on March 11th. For most of the last few months, shipping times have been weeks or more.
Basically, Apple’s now getting iPad 2s to people as quick as they can. They’re still shipping them directly from the factory in China. The next step is for Apple to build up a warehouse over in the States of iPads to ship directly to consumers. When that happens, expect iPad 2 shipping times to go down to 2-3 business days or less.
