Apple Media Advisory: Holy Shit! We’re Selling Boatloads of iPads!

Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad™.

OK, that’s not quite what it says, but it’s the bottom line.

The two-paragraph release goes on to state that US demand is so high they’re delaying the international launch by one month. They’ll begin taking international pre-orders on May 10.
