Korean carriers halt iPad 2 sales as they struggle to meet demand

No sooner did iPad 2 finally become available in Asia, than South Korean carriers SK Tel and KT have suspended sales due to lack of supply.

"Our iPad 2 inventory has been depleted and we apologize for failing to provide enough supplies due to the product's global supply shortages."

Is this a case of too much demand or too little product? Apple has had a huge problem getting enough iPad 2s to market since the US launch, though things are improving.

Any Korean readers unable to get their iPad 2? Anyone think Apple could have a problem on their hands if customers decide to look elsewhere?
