Many, if not all, of Apple’s online stores worldwide have dropped iPad 2 estimated shipping times to 2-3 weeks from highs that were once as much as 5-6 weeks for some stores and models.
According to most MacDailyNews reader reports, iPad 2 orders, at least in the U.S., never took the anywhere near even the minimum time stated by Apple for shipping as the company seems to have adopted the under-promise/over-deliver concept – for online sales of iPad 2, at least.
As of this morning, we still have scattered reports of iPad 2 lineups outside Apple Retail Stores. Such lines have been a daily occurrence since iPad 2 launched in the U.S. on March 11th.
