Apple iPad 2 lead time cut to 1-3 days

Apple iPad 2 lead time cut to 1-3 days
Supply of the Apple iPad 2 is finally catching up to demand. One week after the wait to receive the tablet was 3 to 5 days after ordering it online, the lead time is now down to 1 to 3 days. By next week, the hope is that iPad 2 orders will be fulfilled 24 hours after the order is placed, the same as with most Apple products.

Back in March, we reported that shipping times were 3 to 4 weeks as some orders were penciled in for a 1 month delivery schedule. The question now is the glass half empty or half filled? Most likely, the cut in lead times is due to Apple's ability to churn out more iPads than due to a drop off in demand for the device. The Apple iPad 2 has about 67% of the tablet market and that figure might even grow higher in the months ahead and spring shipments could even double from the prior quarter. And now that production is beginning to keep pace with demand, it might spur even more orders for Apple's tablet.
