iPad shortages due to poor screen production

Screen shortages caused iPad delay

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Apr 20, 2010 5:06 pm

Last week Apple announced that it would be delaying the launch of the iPad in Europe due to excessive demand. The finger is now being pointed at display production issues for the delay.

Bloomberg reports that the delay is because the three suppliers of iPad screens -- LG Display, Samsung Electronics, and Seiko Epson Corp -- are having production issues with screens. "We understand that the yields on the display have been low and that they're creating a production bottleneck," Rassweiler said in an interview. "That they have been doing it for the iPhone for some time is great, but once you go to 9.7 inches, it is a much more complicated process."

 

Sources cited by Bloomberg claims that production yields have been low and Apple simply can't get enough screens to fulfill orders. Apple offered no official comments on the story.
