Apple: To Produce 6 Million iPad 2 Monthly
With the high anticipation about the second-generation iPad, Apple aims to produce 6 million units every month. With additional manufacturers on the list, it seems that they are likely going to make it.
Apple believes that its anticipated iPad 2 will be more popular than the first model, as the Cupertino-based company is expected to order production of 6 million units every month. If rumors are to be believed, it would be significantly higher than the 4 million per quarter production of the current iPad. Overseas sources revealed that Apple added Chimei Innolux and Cando as additional panel makers for the second-gen iPad. These expanded number of partners will allow Apple to produce more iPad every month. Sources also indicated that suppliers will start shipments to the company by January or February of next year. They also pointed out that Apple has no intentions of producing a 7-inch iPad that is smaller and lighter than the current model.
