iPad 2 Expected to Ship by End of February 2011
According to a new DigiTimes report, Foxconn Electronics will ship Apple’s iPad 2 within the next 100 days or what the source notes as soon as the end of February. The intial shipments should reach 400,000 – 600,000 units.
The sources pointed out that the iPad 2 will ship as soon as the end of February in 2011. Apple originally planned to start mass production in January, but because the device’s firmware is currently still in testing, Apple has been postponing the schedule. Since Foxconn’s new plants in Chengdu are still in pilot production, iPad 2 will be mainly supplied by its Shenzhen plants, while the company’s upstream component partners have all been notified of the shipments schedule.
