IPad 2 Launch, Apple Ships a Third of Expected Numbers

A lot of people are possibly going to go home disappointed today. With all of the people out there in lines all afternoon, we have reports from an Apple Campus Store that they only received in a third of the shipment they were expecting. We also received reports from a few different Best Buy's around the country. There are no more than 5 units at any of the locations we polled.

iPad 2 Review

iPad 2 Review

The iPad shaped the consumer tablet market. Now, just as Android 3.0 Honeycomb slates are rising to the challenge, the iPad 2 is here to move Apple's game on even further.
