iPad In Short Supply As Demand Soars
According to reports, the iPad is still in short supply months after its opening debut.
A new research conducted by the research firm Piper Jaffray has revealed that Apple’s wonderful tablet computer is in short supply as demand in increasing with each passing day.
Fortune magazine’s web site reported that the analysts of the firm called 50 Apple stores and found a “very limited” supply of iPads. It is a well-known fact that the iPad is a hugely popular device. The Cupertino-based company sold 1 million iPads in the first month, which is a record in itself. An analyst at RBC Capital Markets that more than 200,000 iPads are sold per week in the US alone, compared to 110,000 Macs per week.
Experts maintained that the iPad has dominated the netbook industry within no time and it is expected that its growing popularity would also affect the sales of the Apple’s another device, the iPod. Meanwhile, the demand for iPads and competing tablet computers and e-reader devices is growing consistently.
This expounds on data that seems to show that within a few years a 1/4 of all computer users will have a tablet device of some sort on hand.
