    Can Apple sell 14 million iPad 2 units in Q3?


    The iPad is a very popular tablet, but somehow recent sales estimations have made even the most optimistic Apple fans raise an eyebrow. The Cupertino-based giant could sell as many as 14 million iPad 2 tablets in the third quarter of 2011, research firm CLSA informs. Most analysts expect the iPad 2 to sell between 10 to 12 million units in Q3, but CLSA checked the sales data available from Display Search and came up with this surprising conclusion.

    The market can absorb 14 million iPad 2 units in just one quarter, there is no doubt about it. But the real question is : Can Apple supply enough tablets to meet demand? The company has had production issues before which lead to stock shortages, and maybe 14 million iPad 2 units is just too high a figure to reach.

    Not to mention the fact that Apple needs to increase or divert its manufacturing capacity so as to produce the upcoming iPhone 5.
    Apple could sell 50 million iPad tablets this year, provided that sales level does not drop. The second most popular tablet, which is manufactured by Asus, is expected to sell only two million units by the end of 2011.

    It is worth mentioning that previous predictions related to the iPad’s sales level have been rather inaccurate in the past. ”Keep in mind that AAPL has missed iPad consensus in 2 out of the last 3 quarters, even when supply chain forecasts were higher,” CLSA’s reports warns. As for the iPad 2’s successor, it is very likely that the next-gen tablet integrates a better SoC and offers a resolution three times higher than the current iPad resolution.
