After analyzing data collected from Taiwanese components suppliers, Digitimes concluded as follows: The first installment of new iPad will be ready for dispatch in the next 100 days. Software for the next iPad is still undergoing testing, which does not correspond to the original plans for Apple. Because of this delay, supply the updated model until early March will be from 400 to 600 thousand units.
The news is very important since, as is conceivable, Jobs could hold the keynote presentation at the end of January to introduce the world to the new model and start marketing in less than a month, having available a sufficient number of facilities to satisfy the requirements of the first few weeks (if the pace of sales remained similar to the current model, 500,000 units would end up in very few days).
