After five months since its release, Apple has now caught up with the supply of iPad 2. Now if you order an iPad 2 from the U.S. online store, it ships within 24 hours. Previously, it took Apple up to 3 weeks to ship your iPad 2.
Apple released the iPad 2 on March 2 and shipping started in the USA on March 11. The company was initially overwhelmed by the demand and soon there was a constraint between demand and supply.
A month back, explosion at iPad 2 manufacturing plant in China delayed production of about 500,000 iPad 2 units, further increasing the gap that existed in between the demand and supply of iPad 2.
