Look around and you might find the Apple iPad 2 in stock at some stores
While all of the empty store shelves and longer delivery times following the initial launch point at a successful release for Apple, no figures have been revealed yet by the manufacturer. And as we reported, the international launch of the tablet is today with 25 countries including France, Germany and the U.K. on tap to get the Apple iPad 2. Other countries like Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea are due to receive the tablet next month.

The stock at the Apple Stores are getting better. I had to line up incredibly early to get one, but it seemed like even with 2 sold per person, a lot more people were able to get into the store and buy and iPad than the week of the launch.

Maybe because it is superior to the competition.
Way better graphics, better battery, better display, a more mature and stable OS, and a great selection of apps. I have both the Xoom and iPad 2, and to be honest I wouldn't recommend the Xoom right now, or any other Honeycomb device. Apple's got this market for now.

Obviously android hitman you have been living under a rock.
I too had the Xoom and took it back to get the iPad 2. It is in many ways a far superior product than the Xoom.

There were plenty of iPad's at my local Walmart the after the big rush. . . and still are.
Apple likes to short stock at their stores so they can drive the frenzy up a little more for the impatient children wanting their new iToy. It's their normal marketing tactics.

Dont mistake being brainwashed with having loyalty. Apple makes a superb product and there is a reason people stand in line to get the newest and greatest Apple product.
The ipod blew away the competition because of its innovation and coolness combined with its functionality and user friendliness. I can still hear the Microsoft Zune fans bashing every new model.
The Ipod Touch came-a-long and revolutionized the way we listen to music because it added an entertainment value with the use of applications.
The Ipone used what the ipod touch already had and blew every touch screen phone out of the water. Multi-touch was practically invented by apple. The app store is genius
The ipad is slowly replacing the need for a desktop or laptop for the average person.
This is why every single company is following apples footsteps! They are all trying to copy apple products and desperately working on outdoing the hardware specs.

Hmm a little slow for the trolls today. Usually this threads are filled with them hopelessly bashing Apple. Are they starting to give up? I hope so. Let them move to android central.

My local Bestbuy had them in stock 2 days ago so I agree with the article.
