Could the new iPad3 been in short demand on release?
question of availability of the iPad3's 2048x1536 is currently under
question. Will the display be available in the volumes that Apple
typically need? This is reported as possibly one concern that may effect
the the quantity on first release of the iPad3.
Currently it is
reported that "Samsung is having some difficulty supplying the panels
and there's a short delay", a source told CNET. However, currently this
all comes from the speculation that Apple will be announcing the iPad3
on the 7th and that the ship date might come later.
Any display shortages could widen the delay between the announcement
of the product and any actual release date. Historically Apple puts new
products on sales within days or weeks of being announced. Buyers are
generally put on wait lists where there is a backlog of outstanding
orders and this has been the case with the release of both the iPad and
Apple may choose to use other display suppliers to get
round any shortage that Samsung may have; with rumors of both LG Display
and Sharp being other suppliers.
Will you be buying an iPad3 on release?
