iPad and AppleTV shipping times start slipping

Demand for the new iPad, at the very least the LTE models in the United States, appears to be as strong as expected. Apple’s preorder page now lists both the white 16GB and 64GB AT&T LTE models with a delivery date of March 19. The rest of the models are currently still listed as shipping on March 16, as announced by Apple during yesterday’s unveiling. Apple’s Canadian online store lists all models with a delivery date of March 16-20, except the 64GB Wi-Fi only model listed as “Available by: March 19”.

In addition, the German Apple online store is officially sold out and now lists a delivery date of March 22 (originally March 16) on all models. Preorders in Japan were previously inaccessible after the unveiling, but seem to be functioning normal now. An international rollout is expected to take place on March 23 with 26 more countries getting access to order the device. Get the full details here.

The Apple TV is also getting a bumped shipping estimate. It was supposed to deliver to preorder customers on March 16, but Apple’s website now lists the device as shipping in “1-2 weeks.”
