  • Foxconn Shipping iPad 2 in February 2011?


    Rumors are swirling that the iPad 2 will begin shipping in the next hundred days, according to a new DigiTimes report. According to sources from within the Taiwan-based company, Foxconn will reportedly begin shipping 400,000-600,000 units by the end of February 2011. Officially, Foxconn had no comment.

    According to the report, Apple originally planned to start production of the iPad 2 in January, but had to push back the schedule due to firmware testing. Foxconn’s plants in Chengdu are still in a “pilot production” mode, so production of the iPad 2 will also be done at Foxconn’s Shenzhen plants as well. Of course, the actual release date for the iPad 2 is ultimately up to Steve Jobs. He may very well wait to release it till he feels that the time is right.

    The iPad has been a huge success for Apple and they are sure to sell quite well during the busy holiday shopping season. The iPad 2 is rumored to up the ante in the ongoing tablet wars, with a wide array of new features including multiple cameras for FaceTime, gyroscope support, a thinner case, retina display and a USB connector. We’ll just have to wait for the first quarter of next year to see what new features Apple decides to include on the 2011 iPad model. Hopefully, Apple will also find a way to reduce the price a bit so more people can join in on all the iPad “magic.”

      FaceTime automatically means 2 cameras. It wouldn't be FaceTime, without letting your caller see what your seeing

      The iPad has 256mb. iPhone 4 has 512. MyTouch 4g has 768. My mbp has 4,096.
      For a device that that's supposed to be more powerful than a phone, but right under a laptop. The current iPad is in need of a ram upgrade like no other.

      What does "should of" mean? Are you trying to say should've or should have?

      Of course, Apple is smart, they will wait until all 30 day return policies have lapsed after Christmas.

      i was thinking the same thing. I would say the apple event might be in febuary then shipping in march. Last year the event was in January so it should be coming up soon either way

      I'd say mini conference some time in February. That's past the 30day return window

      Also I don't see them waiting till June to announce when Android will probably have 3.0 tablets out before then & RIM PlayBook, there's a rumor of a higher res Samsung Tab coming this summer.

      I'm pretty sure you're going to see plenty of advertising for the Motorola tablet and RIM PlayBook on TV and the net, not sure about other manufacturers but that will take some of Apple potential buyers

      For everyone complaining that the first iPad should have had more features included /obviously/ know absolutely nothing about business. You don't continue to make money off of your product by putting all of your eggs in one basket! It would be different if The tablet market were already alive and thriving.

      After reading this, I have yet to understand your question. Normally I can make out what is said/asked. But this time.... I am completely riddled!

      Did you mean "how much the price of the first iPad will price will drop after the 2nd iPad is is released"???

      That doesn't change how much your mind can't be altered. But to get back to the subject. I'd say about $100-$200. Give or take a few. The amount of descent shouldn't really decrease until the 2nd version is /actually/ on the market. Don't knock me for my opinion.... Cuz it's just that. MY OPINION.
