it has sold 1 million plus units with increased demand by folks that are willing to wait 1-2 weeks to get one. And that's just in the US.

There are several colleges trying to arrange to give ipads to at least their uncoming students if not all of them, hospitals ordering them for their staff, etc.

Why are you calling when they will put you on the list and send you an email. they have been doing it since like 2 days after the wifi ones went on sale (despite Gene trying to make it sound like a new thing)

Agreed. and I don't even need the majority. give me ONE mobile device that is running Flash (not Flash lite but the real thing) for more than one minute with no crashes, no overheating, no 10% battery drop in 10 seconds etc.

Then they can take about how Jobs is off his head with his hate talk etc.

Although a number of sites are Apping up or going to HTML5 so it could be moot by the time Adobe can pull it off.

Heck, you know how Google has been all "we love Adobe" and "Flash is awesome". anyone check out their playable pacman logo today. pulled up just fine on my ipad so I'm betting it's not Flash.

7 days wait is not too bad. There is just nothing else out there comparable at the moment. But there will be soon enough I'm sure.

From what I read, the only Flash used for that game is for the audio.

Google knows the future of the web is HTML5 and has been one of the first and largest supporters. But Apple is a major competitor to them so I see this Adobe love as a classic "the enemy or my enemy is my friend" maneuver.

You can order one online. However if you want it tax free and live close to an Apple Store in an state that charges no sales tax, thenthe store can put you on a wait list, no point in wasting your time and calling everyday. I did that, and I got my iPad 3g 16Gb, yesterday. Took about 7 days, but worth the wait.

It's magic . I know its counter-inutive but really its the best device for consuming information.

I buy products because they are good. You buy them because you are easily swayed by hype.

Logic for every occasion.

To the extent Apple products are successful people are stupid and wrong. It's a very convenient analysis, since the number of stupid and wrong people automatically adjusts to account for sales.

The only downside is that when Apple is hugely successful it obliges you to become bitter and misanthropic, railing against the failings of humanity itself.

Don't count on getting an IPAD here in the U.S. until after the big INTERNATIONAL LAUNCH on the 28th.
Website saying 7-10 days, however calling the 800 # tells you this is only approximate.
