The early consumer gets the new iPad, so they say. If you’ve put off pre-ordering, it looks like demand for the third gen iPad has pushed back the shipping date by a few days to March 19. Orders placed Wednesday and Thursday, on the other hand, should still be right on schedule for March 16. Hardly a significant setback compared to how scarce the iPad 2 was when it hit the market in 2011, but still. Better make your purchase(s) now before the supply well completely dries up. Or you can brave ridicule from Samsung by waiting in line at your local Apple Store, your call.
