FedEx & UPS Warn NY, NJ & Other Sandy States Their iPad Minis Might Not Be Delivered Tomorrow

Although Hurricane Sandy passed through the Northeastern United States on Monday, the aftermath is still being felt three days later.

What does this mean?

iPad 2 Orders Now Taking 3-4 Weeks to Ship Through Apple Online Store

iPad 2 Orders Now Taking 3-4 Weeks to Ship Through Apple Online Store

If you weren’t fortunate enough to order your iPad 2 through the Apple online store yesterday, you may want to try third-party suppliers and Apple specialists if you want one anytime soon, as shipping time for the second-generation tablet has today increased to 3-4 weeks through Apple.

It hasn’t yet been revealed by Apple how many iPad 2s it sold on launch day, however, industry analysts have predicted that a staggering 600,000 of the devices will be sold during its first weekend.
