Apple Cancels iPad 3 Orders for 2011?

Apple has reportedly canceled its iPad 3 orders for the second half of 2011, according to DigiTimes.

Apple was originally set to launch its iPad 3 in the second half of 2011 with a supply volume of 1.5-2 million units in the third quarter and 5-6 million in the fourth quarter, but Apple's supply chain partners have recently discovered that the related figures have all already been deleted, the sources pointed out.

According to the site's sources, the delay may be due to poor yield rates on the 2048x1536 Retina Display. Since Apple couldn't guarantee an adequate supply it's unlikely the iPad 3 will be mass produced as originally scheduled.

This delay is said to have caused other tablet manufacturers to push back the launch of their tablets intended to compete with the iPad 3.

You should change the name of this site to iQuestions.com because almost every story has that question mark at the end. Apple to... ? Steve Jobs...? OS X to be... ? Really...
