Apple Delays Certain iPad Accessories Until May
Per AppleInsider, Apple has announced shipping delays on some of its forthcoming iPad accessories with both the keyboard dock and 10W USB power adapter now being listed as having ship dates in May.
In addition, the $39 iPad soft case, which was originally scheduled to ship on April 3 when pre-orders began last Friday, has been delayed until mid-April. The $69 keyboard dock was originally scheduled to ship in mid-April, and the $29 USB power adapter in late April.
The estimated shipping dates for the iPad dock ($29) and the dock connector to VGA adapter ($29) remain on schedule for the iPad’s April 3rd ship date and the in-ear headphones with remote and microphone are still slated to ship within 24 hours for $79.
Apple began accepting pre-orders for the iPad as of last Friday, the company limiting purchases to two per customer for both regular customers and businesses.
While the Wi-Fi-only iPad is set to launch in the U.S. on April 3, the 3G-capable model, which carries a $130 premium, will go on sale later that month. In addition, international orders for both the Wi-Fi and 3G models will be filled in late April.
