Those folks at Digitimes is on a roll. They are reporting that sources in Apple’s supply chain are shipping five million iPad 2 touch sensors this month. They add that the June shipments were also five million.
If this report is true, this may fall in line with the expectations we heard a while back, also from component suppliers. It was estimated that Apple plans to ship about 12 to 14 million iPad 2s during the third quarter. Chancers are they are sitting on some of the inventory as they prepare for the busier season in hopes of having enough supply to meet the heavy holiday demand.
Products like the iPad are likely to be hot holiday items this year.
