    Default iPad 2 Delayed Until June?


    Citing supplier checks, a Taiwanese research firm is claiming that the iPad 2 launch may be delayed to June due to production problems. Bloomberg is quoting Yuanta Securities analysts as saying that design changes that Apple requested are leading to issues in manufacturing at Foxconn, which saw its parent company's stock drop to its lowest price since December after the report.

    According to other reports out of the Asian supply chain, production of the new iPad began at the start of 2011 and was halted for the Chinese New Year holiday this month. Analysts Vincent Chen and Allison Chen told Bloomberg that Apple had made some changes to the design before the holiday, and that Foxconn ran into problems when production was restarted. The bottleneck is reportedly so severe that it could force a delay in the release of as much as two months, pushing it close to the expected iPhone 5 release in June.

    The report also notes that several Android tablets based on the 3.0 "Honeycomb" version of the OS will be released in April and May, which the analysts say "may give the Android camp a brief window of opportunity." The delay would also cut the total number of iPads shipped in 2011 to 23 million, as opposed to earlier estimates of 30.6 million for an April launch.

    The stock price of Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd., which is the parent company of Foxconn, dropped 2.2 percent to NT$111.50 at the close of Taipei trading. This is the stock's lowest price since December 2.

    I owned an iPad WiFi + 3G from its original release until December when I sold it (good resale value). It essentially became obsolete when I got an iPhone 4. I hate it when people say that the iPad is "just a big iPhone", but in a way it is. I just hope that Apple can make some big upgrades so that it isn't just a big iPhone anymore. The iPad needs to be right in the middle between Macs and iPhones, not so close to the iPhone side.

    Pre order, then have your family ship it to your APO...or your ship, depending on your duty station. I have many things shipped to my AOR when I was deployed.

    I'll patiently wait to see what this "change" is before I make my decision.

    i doubt they'd release a new iPad and a new iPhone in the same month...
    that pic is legit, im sure they wont wait that long.

    or maybe they got sick of updating the iPhone every year and are trying to fill the gap with the new iPad.

    Don't give it to your girlfriend! Big mistake before leaving for the military. Give it to your family. You'll most likely have a little liberty to come back home after bootcamp anyway.

    I don't think that's likely, given that the Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1 are coming out in march.
    Apple is not gonna let the competition take over.

    Just make sure the custom form they have to fill out does not say exactly what it is or it will probably get stolen, just be generic with everything you have sent say "electron parts" dont put "iPad" trust me i know somebody that had an ipod and somebody else that had a 2400 dollar macbook pro stolen in the mail when it arrived to IRAQ it was an empty box....messed up too cuz it was probably taken by another service member...just good info to know good luck.
