DigiTimes, the source of all good Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) production gossip in Asia apparently, is reporting that a Taiwan based company will also begin shipping 9.7-inch touch screens for the iPad within the next month.
This will add a 1 million unit per month supply capability to Apple’s production lines.
Apple have been dogged with supply problems since the iPad’s launch. Only in the last month getting their supply volume just about in parity with consumer demand – where the iPad is available.
With China, and other countries opening up very soon to the iPad, and Christmas coming it seems Apple is making sure that its aggressive moves into new markets are backed up with a reliable supply of iPads!
It is also possible of course that Apple is bolstering supply lines for another iPad device, or renewed demand for an updated device on or around the end of the year…
Do you think Apple is just catching up with demand? Or are they prepping supply lines for a new iPad? Have your say in the comments…
