Apple has canceled its iPad 3 supply schedule that concerns the second half of the year, and in this rather surprising move, it has forced other tablet PC brand vendors who are about to release similar class devices to follow suit and delay their respective product launches. Having said that, those who aren’t bothered about being at the forefront of the early adopter line will be pleased to know that the iPad 2 in the second half will remain at 28 to 30 million units.
Of course, there are many reasons as to why something like this might have happened – some sources claim that the yield rate of the 9.7″ panel which sports a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution could be the main issue, as Sharp’s deliveries tend to be higher in price, while Samsung Electronics and LG Display cannot achieve a good yield. As it is out of Apple’s hands to control a certain level of supply volume, that might just place the iPad 3 on the backburner for the moment.
They say that there is a silver lining behind every cloud – I suppose the silver lining here would allow you the luxury of time to start saving up for not one, but two iPad 3s when it is released.RELATED
