More news from DigiTimes today. While Apple is likely to report their iPad 2 unit sales during their upcoming earnings conference call, DigiTimes reports that Apple may have shipped about 2.4 million to 2.6 million tablets in March.
The report further indicates that the iPad 2 shipping rates should accelerate and are projected to reach upwards of 4.3 million units per month in each spring month.
It is also reported that the main limiting factor for Apple in this case could be the supply of cover lenses for touchscreen panels. Apple typically relies on a small number of suppliers, and may have to diversify to ensure that supplies keep ahead of demand.
If these sales figures are accurate, they bring no surprise considering the continent-wide iPad 2 shortages experienced by many Canadian and American retailers.
