The iPad 2 may be delayed until June due to production issues. At least, that’s what one Taiwanese brokerage firm is claiming, according to Reuters.
In a research note released today, Yuanta Securities analyst Vincent Chen said that manufacturer Hon Hai has run into issues with the production process in light of the tablet’s new design and is working on a fix.
“Our checks suggest new issues are being encountered with the new production process and it is taking time to resolve them,” Chen said in the note, according to Reuters.
However, several retailers have already been running low on the current iPad, with a few vendors out of stock completely on certain models, according to the 9to5Mac enthusiast site. Such short supply is typically seen as a sign of an impending new release from Apple.
