Goldman Sachs analyst: Apple to have production difficulties with the new iPad, may lead to limited availability at launch
He comments on the issue:
"It appears that Apple is once again pushing the technology envelope by making the device far thinner than the original iPad, and the iPad 2's ultra-thin glass screen is generating yield issues. This appears to be more of a process problem as opposed to a technology problem, and we wouldn't be surprised to see volumes ramp fairly quickly as the process improves."
The Goldman Sachs analyst rebuffed the rumours that the iPad 2 is to be delayed, and said that the fact the new-gen Apple tablet will be available in limited quantities "should not be a major problem", not at least because it's said that this is often the case with the Cupertino-based company's products.
