The iPad 2 is disappearing off store shelves around the world at a blistering rate ─ possibly even faster than its predecessor.
In a stunning display of the devices popularity, the iPad 2 has already sold out in stores in many of the 25 countries after launching on Friday (March 25), and reports from Australia to Britain to Canada confirm what many in the United States learned a two weeks ago: Bringing home an iPad 2 could take some time.
Now comes word that the device has sold 2 million iPads in March and, according to DigiTimes, Apple is on track for somewhere between 4 million and 4.2 million iPads a month.
Apple unveiled its follow-up to the popular iPad in the United States on March 2, and the thinner, lighter and faster version of the original went on sale March 11. It has been estimated that sales from the first weekend were estimated at 1 million units as the iPad 2 was sold out across virtually all channels.
