    I wonder if this limited stock is on purpose?

    It gives Apple time to tweak an refine the product until it is actually released in massive quantities.

    Just a thought....

    Maybe but in general I think they want to have everyone with a watch as fast as they can. Looking at posts, they just started mass producing the end of March. Roughly. So, they did wait as long as they could to still meet the statement that it will be available first part of 2015.

    No chance. They'll want to get as many out the door as possible.

    As to the second point... they could tweak the manufacturing process certainly, but any hardware changes that change the user experience wouldn't make sense as then early adopters would have an inferior product.

    I don't think so. remember when Apple said "early 2015". I wouldn't call late April 'early 2015' by any means. I think they had some last minute manufacturing issues and design issues that pushed things a couple months and they are just getting them out now. Supply is actually tight imo.
