Norwegians max out on iPad pre-orders

Here are two things you did not know:

1. Norway is exceptionally optimistic about the iPad, it seems, with electronics retailer Apple House (Eplehuset) having to halt pre-orders because the demand has outstripped their ability to deliver.

2. In fact, the people of those far north countries are so enormous and virile that they are actually purchasing the iPad for use as a phone. Its 9.5×7.5″ size fits their brawny hands exactly, and with the handy accessory strap, it doubles as a small shield for those Norwegians who choose not to dual-wield.
