Apple Orders More iPads 2

If competitors were already having a hard time finding enough components to build their tablets - thanks to Apple's "lockdown" on critical components, like touchscreens - looks like things are about to get even harder.

Apple has raised the orders for iPad 2 production from the already high 7-9 millions units to an incredible 12-14 millions for the third quarter alone!

Can you imagine the logistics behind these kinds of things? 14 million iPads means:

  • 155 thousands iPads made every day
  • 6481 iPads per hour
  • 108 iPads per minute
  • almost 2 iPads per second!

... consecutively, 24/7 for three straight months.
