Possibly still that time of the month for the iPad

  • March 3, 2010 11:15 am

So it seems that the rumors of a delay in iPad manufacturing are false. Apple had planned to have around 1,000,000 units ready by launch, but research analyst Peter Misek of Canaccord Adams claimed that a “manufacturing bottleneck” would limit the launch to around 300,000, if you are good at math, you’ll see that is a lot less than what was expected.

Foxconn Electronics says that all of their suppliers parts shipments are on schedule and that they should be able to ship between 600,000-700,000 units by launch later this month. There has been some speculation that Apple will not only limit the release to US because of the number of actual ready iPads, but they will also delay the launch date. Apple has only said they will be launching at the end of March. No set date yet, so this will actually make it easier for them to delay if we can’t get the 1 million pieces.

I’m sure all the Apple fanboys with many hundreds of dollars burning holes in their pockets will be happy to know that they might not have too hard of a time getting their hands on this purrrty little device.

We’ll try to keep you updated on this, and the official launch from Apple!
