Suppliers have reportedly begun delivering parts and components for the next generation iPad which will be available in 3-4 months, according to a DigiTimes report.

OEM production of iPad 2 will remain high at 14-15 million units in the fourth quarter of 2011 but decline to 4-5 million units in the first quarter of 2012, paving the way for the launch of the new iPads, the sources noted. Meanwhile, Foxconn Electronics will begin to produce the next-generation iPads in January and to ramp up the production volume starting February, according to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report, which quoted Kevin Chang, an analyst of Citigroup Global Markets, as indicating.

Apple is expected to produce 9.5-9.8 million units of the new iPad in the first quarter of 2012. iPad sales reportedly total 25.06 million in the first three quarters of this year and are thought to reach 40 million units for the entire year.
