Apple has given a new shipping date for its 3G iPad model amid widespread demand for the first versions of the device.
The company's web site states that new orders in the US will arrive on 7 May, three days before the device is set to open for pre-sale in the UK and several other countries. Previously placed orders are still reportedly on track to ship in late April.
The 3G iPad will be the first to support wireless broadband connections. The device will cost between $629 and $829 along with a data fee for the 3G connection. The company will give international pricing on 10 May when pre-orders open.
Apple set a timeline when the iPad was originally unveiled, in which the Wi-Fi-only device went on sale in early April. The 3G versions of the device were set to debut in late April, as was the start of international availability.
Soon after the device debuted, however, the company reported stronger than expected sales which created a shortage and led to the delay of shipments for new orders and the postponement of international releases.
