New iPad pre-orders sell out in just 5 days
SAN FRANCISCO (KABC) -- Apple's new iPad comes out Friday, but some customers may have to wait longer.
The company says iPads set aside for pre-orders sold out in just five days. Apple's website shows pre-orders will take two to three weeks to ship.
Of course, customers can wait in line at an Apple store and hope that the iPad hasn't sold out by the time they get inside.
Apple unveiled the new product last week. The new iPad is simply called that - the new iPad, not the iPad 3 or iPad HD as many expected.
It will be slightly thicker and heavier: 9.4 millimeters thick and 1.4 pounds. It will also have a 5 mexapixel camera, full HD recording, voice dictation and a 10-hour battery life.
Prices will stay the same, with a 16GB entry-level model costing $499. Versions capable of accessing cellular networks will cost $629 to $829.
