LG Display has stated that they may not be able to keep up with the growing iPad demand as they plan to cut LCD production next month. "We are now running at full capacity, but we are considering production cuts in August," Reuters reported LG Display CEO Kwon Young-soo as saying. "Apple may have to delay launches of the iPad for some countries due to tight component supplies and strong demand. We are considering increasing production lines for iPad products, but overall supply is likely to remain tight until early next year."
