In case you wanted a giant phone, you’ll be tickled previously-undefined shades of pink to know that you no longer have to wait additional weeks to caress its suspiciously cumbersome form factor – iPads are finally shipping within 24 hours, according to the Apple store.
Since launch, the wait time had been three-weeks-ish, and in the last few weeks, they’d cut it down to one. But supply finally seems to be catching up with demand, with all six models apparently available to ship within the day.
I’m not one to give Apple undue praise, but considering Steve and Friends sold 500k units in the first week and are expected to sell 13 million by the end of this year, that they dare estimate a 24-hour shipping ETA is impressive as hell. Nice shootin’, Steve.
Personally, I’m still perfectly content using Best Buy’s test model whenever I need an iPad fix. So there’s greasy fingerprints all over it, whatever. An iPad’s an iPad’s an iPhone XL. Plants vs. Zombies is still bodacious.
