Apple says that it shipping over 500,000 iPads during the first week and that demand will “continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks.” This demand even extends to the 3G models of which it says it has taken a “large number of pre-orders.”

    This is great news for Apple. All other mobile device manufacturers should be quaking in their boot. I am still waiting for my 3G iPad to ship and luckily I’m live in the USA. I don’t think most people realize the this is a watershed event in the history of mobile devices. Even with all the complaints regarding what the iPad doesn’t do, it is what it does and how easily and painlessly it does it that will ultimately be the killer app.
