9to5 Mac reports today that just a few days after the iPad 2 went on sale in South Korea, two of the countryâ€™s top telecoms companies, SK Telecom and KT Corp, have stopped online iPad 2 sales due to supply issues, with SK Telecom posting the following message on its website:
Furthermore, 9to5 Mac reveals that the online Apple Store in Singapore has also ceased shipments of all iPad 2s. As 9to5 Mac says, itâ€™s hard to tell at this stage whether or not this is an indication that Apple has more serious supply issues with the iPad 2 than first thought. It could simply mean that South Korea and Singapore are not such a high priority on Appleâ€™s supply chain, so they get less stock. One to keep an eye on though.
