Apple enjoys having long lines of people waiting to get product.  I wish I were kidding but that's the best conclusion I can come to.  They allowed preorders for the iPhone 4 for Verizon and it didn't result in the kind of press Apple wanted since everyone who ordered one got one.  It was a non-event.  So when it came to the iPad 2, they knowingly released without enough stock to fill the demand while simultaneously denying preorders.  The result?  Long lines and stories about stores being sold out for weeks.  Apple is all about the hype (who wouldn't be?).  Considering the lukewarm reception the 4S got, I imagine they're looking for lines and the stories about people waiting in line.
