iPad 2 shipping times slip to 2-3 weeks hours after launch

Could put crush on retail stores

Shipping times for the iPad 2 at Apple's online store have already stretched out to between two to three weeks, checks show. Orders only opened at about 1AM Pacific time, or 4AM Eastern. Over the course of the morning times were already slipping from 3 to 5 days to 5 to 7.

The delays are affecting all iPad 2 models, whether white or black, or equipped with Wi-Fi or 3G. Shipping estimates for accessories like Smart Covers have remained mostly static, generally no more than two days. The one exception is the iPad 2 dock, which may take as much as one to three weeks to arrive.
