Some iPad Accessories Won't Be Available Until Weeks After Ship Date

If you pre-ordered a WiFi iPad and you were hoping to use one of those snazzy keyboard/charger/display stands Apple showed off at the January unveiling, you’re going to have to wait a few extra weeks, as it’s one of a few iPad accessories that won’t be available until after the April 3 ship date for the plus-sized iPod Touches.

According to Apple’s online store, the keyboard dock now has a ship date of “late April,” with some reports that the real ship date has been pushed back to May. The same goes for the iPad’s 10W USB power adapter.

For those who have been thinking about ordering an iPad, does this have any effect on your decision?
