iPad meets strong pre-order sales in Canada – new orders shipping for June 7th

Apple Store OnlineApple started taking iPad pre-orders on Monday with orders arriving on the iPad’s release date of May 28th.  It appears that the iPad’s demand is strong enough here in the Great White North that Apple has gone through their initial batch of iPads.  Orders made today through Apple’s online store are now promised to arrive on June the 7th. 

While Apple will still have iPads for sale on the Canadian release date, to get your hands on one of those you will have to brave the lines outside Apple’s retail locations.  Of course the option of cross border shopping remains, with iPads reportedly in stock in most American Apple Stores.

Or, you know, wait until June 7th.

Once again for those who missed our previous blog post, Apple has announced the iPad’s Canadian pricing as: 

Pad (sic) is available in Canada for a suggested retail price of $549 (CAN) for 16GB, $649 (CAN) for 32GB, $749 (CAN) for 64GB for Wi-Fi models and $679 (CAN) for 16GB, $779 (CAN) for 32GB and $879 (CAN) for 64GB for Wi-Fi + 3G models. iPad will be sold through the Apple Store® (www.apple.ca/store), Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers.
