The success of the new iPad has resulted in a supply-constrain on the new item, according to a new statement by Apple executives.

"The new iPad is on fire, and we're selling them as fast as we can make them," the company's chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer said in a statement on Tuesday.

PC Magazine reports that during the first quarter of 2012, Apple has sold nearly 11.8 million iPads in total, including the iPad 2 and original iPad, as well as the newest version. While a count on the number of each isn't yet available, the supply-contrain is highly indicative of the demand for the new iPad.

Much of the iPad 3's popularity has been attributed to its unique Retina Display technology, which has been described as comparable - or perhaps even better - than high resolution television screens. In addition, the new iPad offers more storage, access to an even faster 4G network and improvements to its camera.

For buyers who are eager to get started with one of Apple's tablet computers, but are looking for a cheaper alternative, the company has also lowered its prices on the previous versions, which still share many of the great qualities and functions. Plus, there are other great tablets available that are produced by other companies, like ASUS and Toshiba's versions.
