We guess early birds truly do get the worm. Or at least they get to be the first ones to get their hands on their biggie-sized iPod Touches. Apple announced over the weekend that they’ve sold out of their first run of iPads and some folks won’t be getting their pre-ordered tablet thingies until after April 12, a full 9 days after the initial release date.
Apple had initially promised an April 3 date for pre-orders, but they recently moved that to April 12 as — at least according to them, since they won’t release actual pre-order figures — demand outstripped inventory.
Apple says that if you ordered earlier this month, you’ll still be have your ready-for-framing iPad on time.
