iPad 2 shortages continue, relief 1-2 months away

Gregg Keizer | March 15, 2011
Apple's iPad 2 is in extremely short supply, with shipping delays from Apple's online store now standing at four to five weeks and customers at several prominent retail stores today going away empty-handed.

iSuppli anticipated early shortages of the iPad 2, Alexander added. "When we heard that there were going to be just 100 iPad 2s per store, we knew there was going to be a problem."

Alexander expects that iPad 2 supplies will match demand in the next month or two. "Overall, I think Apple has its ducks well in a row on this."

Shortages at retail stores that received new shipments of iPad 2s today also continued, according to Brian White, an analyst with Ticonderoga Securities.

Lines at Apple stores in both New York City and San Francisco were long earlier today, and Apple handed out tickets to some of those waiting, telling them it was unlikely they would be able to buy an iPad 2, said White in a research note to clients.
