Unhappy New iPad "cannot connect to iTunes Store"

My new iPad intermittently has trouble accessing the iTunes/app store. It is on wi-fi and absolutely has internet connectivity. I have tried resetting the iPad, which doesn't help. I've tried logging out and logging back in with my apple ID, which sometimes temporarily helps. It seems I go through random periods (which happen more often than not) where I cannot download from the app store. I initiate a download and then get a message "cannot connect to iTunes store".

Anyone have any ideas what is going wrong? I am on my home wi-fi.

The iTunes store is most likely being bombarded by all the people playing with their new iPads.

Did any of you find the fix for this issue please? I seem to have this issue with my ipad 3. I cannot seem to get 'Updates' of app store to work!

Any hints are much appreciated.

Wait a few hours and then try again, the problem is likely to be at the server end.
