According to a new Reuters update, launch day *Apple iPads* may be already sold out, with customers who pre-order now not receiving their tablet device until April 12th, 9 days after launch.

Taiwanese parts makers have placed initial estimates on iPads available at launch at around 300,000, and the WSJ said earlier in the week that at least 200,000 have already been pre-ordered so it appears that Apple may already be having supply issues for the huge demand.

The iPad, available in a few different options, with prices ranging from $500 to $800, is Apple’s biggest launch since the iPhone in 2007 and certainly has gigantic hype.

NPD reports that 25 percent of all 18-to-34-year olds surveyed want to purchase an iPad, with those consumers with $100,000 or greater income also seeing high percentages.
