When Apple opened up iPad pre-ordering in March, the company issued a cap of 2 iPads per person. This was not only to curb black marketing of the device but also to help as many customers get hold of one. However, it appears that the demands have spiked beyond control since then. Earlier this week, Apple announced that the company shall be postponing the launch of iPad outside the US by a month in order to keep up with the demand inside the country.
Consequently, Cupertino may have reduced the cap on orders to 1 iPad per person. An iPad customer on the Apple Support forum writes,
I ordered my 2nd unit and Apple cancelled it by writing to me:
“Thank you for your recent Apple order.
To ensure that all customers are given equal opportunity to acquire this
product we have limited the amount available per customer. Therefore,
this order has been cancelled.

Anyone encountered similar problem? I can’t reach their toll-free number.
It still baffles what’s about this device that is getting so many people to buy. Mysterious case of reality distortion, it seems…
