With the iPad launch just a week away, Apple appears to be running out of its initial supply of the devices as the company has pushed the expected shipping date for new Wi-Fi iPad orders to April 12th from the previous April 3rd date. Orders for Wi-Fi + 3G models continue to show a projected shipping date of late April.

Apple has also removed the iPad reservation program from its site. The program allowed consumers to reserve a Wi-Fi iPad for pickup at their local Apple retail store on the launch day of April 3rd. Customers with reserved iPads have been told to come to their retail location between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM on launch day to pick up and purchase their device. Once that window has passed, unclaimed iPads will be returned to general stock.
