Apple pushes back shipment date on iPad 2

That didn't take long: Apple began taking orders online this morning for its update tablet, and while Apple initially promised shipments within 5 to 7 days, the company has had to revise its shipping dates. If you order an iPad 2 now it will be shipped in 2 to 3 weeks.
Is it really possible that Apple is already suffering from inventory constraints?

Unlike the original launch of the iPad, where buyers had to pre-order their tablets for initial delivery on Saturday, April 3, with limited supply at Apple retail stores, this year Apple is stocking its retail partners with tablets. Sales will begin at 5pm today at Best Buy, Walmart and Sam's Clubs locations, and at AT&T and Verizon retail stores (as well as Apple retail stores, of course).
