TechEye reported on the potential shortage some weeks back. It’s to do with components, as far as we understand it.
I4U news claimed today that customers “may end up disappointed” because the Great Big Cupertino company only got a third of the shipments it expected.
Apple Stores, the report continued, have many more iPad 2s than its poor benighted resellers. There are not that many around. Not nearly enough to supply demand. No one has yet established whether demand is greater than supply.
A search on your TechEye using the word “shortage” – gives a hint.
