Apple Set to Shift Staggering 20 Million iPads in This Quarter Alone
AppleInsider reports on yet more excellent news for Apple today, with a story on DigiTimes saying that Foxconn is getting ready to ship 20 million iPad 2s to Apple in the current quarter, which would indicate record-breaking sales figures are on the way for this quarter, as usually Apple sells all the iPads it ships. AppleInsider notes that if this estimate for Foxconn proves to be on the money, it would signify a 60 percent sequential growth for iPad 2 shipments for Apple. And just to help you get your head around just how stunning it would be for Apple to sell 20 million iPad 2s in one quarter, AppleInsider points out that in the last quarter, Apple shipped a record-breaking 9.2 million units, which marked a 183 percent increase from the year-ago-quarter. So basically 20 million sold in the current quarter would mean more than double. Pretty good going, and an indication that Apple has managed to solve its supply chain issues.
