A new report is laying the blame for the delay in the iPad at the feet of Wintek, an Apple supplier. According to said report, the reason for the delay was that Wintek had some sort of issue with the supply of its touch screens used in the device.

Wintek has issued a statement to the Taiwan Stock Exchange stating that all of its operations were running according to plans. The company offered no comments on specific Apple orders.
