Delays in the iPad 2 Launching, Avoided by Apple as Much as Possible

Sales of the iPad 2 come out to be quick together in this country and the United States, but Apple appears to have kept away from the supply-chain troubles that plagued the initial edition of the tablet.

It saw an enormous demand and had to postpone its international launch, as well as in Canada, by a month when Apple appeared with the initial edition of the iPad in April 2010.

There were lines outside Montreal’s Apple flagship store on Ste. Catherine St. W. weeks after the first iPad was launched. This moment in time around, the Canadian launch didn’t have to be postponed, and even though 300 people lined up to acquire the iPad on launch day, lines have been slim to nonexistent ever since afterward.  Times of delivery for online orders have gone down to two to three weeks, from three to four weeks. There is as well an alternative to order an iPad online and select it up at an Apple store the following day.

Delays in the iPad 2 Launching

Apple is projected to maintain the lion’s share of the tablet market even though the iPad2 is facing rivalry from other manufacturer like Motorola and Samsung.  It is projected to sell 36 million units throughout the world this year and carry in over than $1 billion.  In 2010, that compares with 15 million original iPads that were sold over nine months.
