Production issues with new thin display could limit Apple's initial iPad 2 supply
One Wall Street analyst said that Apple’s iPad 2 reportedly may be affected by production difficulties due to some problems with the new ultra-thin glass screen that could result in a limited supply at launch. Although, Apple is not expected to experience delays in launching the iPad 2.
"It appears that Apple is once again pushing the technology envelope by making the device far thinner than the original iPad, and the iPad 2's ultra-thin glass screen is generating yield issues," the analyst wrote. "This appears to be more of a process problem as opposed to a technology problem, and we wouldn't be surprised to see volumes ramp fairly quickly as the process improves."
The new iPad is expected to have a forward-facing camera for FaceTime video chat, faster processor and more RAM, support for both GSM and CDMA wireless technology.
