iPad was announced to be launched in the last week of March but today’s official iPad availability date is almost one week behind the target. According to John Gruber of Daring Fireball this one week delay of the iPad release isn’t because of hardware, but because of software issue.
It was the software, not the hardware, that took a week or two longer to finish than they’d hoped. Nothing extraordinary or unusual, just the usual hard-to-predict timing of turning software that’s almost ready to ship into software that’s ready to ship. In the grand history of major OS release date slips, one week is pretty tame.
