These were the updates for todays first sale of the iPad 2 at the Incredible Connection stores. The reason that service providers did not store the tablet is because it is classified more as a gadget rather then mobile phone. A Cell C representative mentioned that they haven’t got the licence to be an authorized Apple Reseller but should get the licence in 2 weeks. The Apple store that was supposed to open today with the iPad 2 in stock, the opening was delayed to gibe the Incredible Connection a chance to sell.
