    I would assume that Apple would have used this recent launch as a test to guage reaction and demand of this new controversial device. I think that they have many in reserve and are not pumping out their whole stock right away to raise the value of the device to a level where people feel comfortable parting with $900 for a device that really has not much added value over the version 1 iPad.
