Foxconn to Increase Shipments of New iPad to 12-15 Million Units for 2Q12
Foxconn is increasing shipments of the new iPad to 12-15 million units in 2Q12, according to a DigiTimes report.
Shipments from the new iPad supply chain are expected to expand significantly in the second quarter of 2012, with iPad assembler Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) to see its shipments of new iPads grow to 12-15 million units in the second quarter compared to six million units shipped in the first quarter, according to an industry estimate.
The site also reported that TPK and Wintek each shipped about 6-7 million touch modules for iPads in the first quarter, and Chimei Innolux (CMI) shipped another one million units. Judging by the number of modules already shipped, sources are concerned that suppliers may have to lower shipment targets for the next quarter.
