Apple iPad goes on sale in the US

Apple stores on the American east coast opened their doors at 2pm UK time in the most hyped gadget launch since Apple’s iPhone was born back in 2007.

 

Once customers got their hands on the slim tablet computer – labelled a ‘gigantic iPhone’ by boosters as well as critics – Apple staff helped them customise their new devices.  There were also workshops to show users how to get the most out of the device.

The early word on sales figures is bright. A push back on pre-order deliveries earlier this week, from today to April 12, point to Apple selling out of it’s initial stock. And Wall Street analysts predict sales of 1 to 5 million units over the rest of the year.

 

We’re still waiting on this side of the pond for our taste of Apple’s latest iconic product – latest rumour is that the iPad will land on 24 April. But if you can’t bear the wait – you can buy yours in the States and have it delivered in the UK through www.bundlebox.com .
