Tablet sales are in what seems to be a terminal decline and even Apple, the market leader, is suffering dwindling sales of the iPad. However, the iPad Pro could be a much needed shot in the arm for the company's tablet output and through its first two days on sale the oversized slate has saw demand that exceeds supply.In other words, Apple is currently sold out of its iPad Pro inventory. The product was rolled out two days ago and has apparently been an early success, although Apple has not offered any specific figures for sales, but we presume there was a healthy amount of inventory. The company says it has sold out of the 128GB Wi-Fi and cellular enabled Pro's, although the 32GB model is still available. Considering the iPad Pro is being pushed as a laptop alternative, we think the 32GB model is one to avoid, but hey ho, Apple keeps pushing this storage capacity. Either way, consumers seems to be flocking to the iPad Pro in all its guises. Will this spark a revival in Apple's tablet fortunes? That remains to be seen, but the company does not need to sell millions of Pro?s to make huge money. We presume that Cupertino has a very high profit margin considering the 128GB model sits around $1000. If you want one of those storage variants, you will now have to wait four or five weeks for shipping dates.
