According to sources Apple is currently shipping 1.2 million iPads per month and might just reach numbers around 2.5 million per month by the end of the year. Manufacturers have begun shipping large quantities of the parts needed for the iPad. According to rumors, Samsung Electronics who are manufacturing the touch panel for the iPad will be shipping between 300,000 to 500,000 such panels per month starting from July.
Apparently the production and shipping of iPads has steadily increased since the launch of the product. While many believe that the iPad’s quick availability internationally has helped early sales, the introduction of iOS4 with multitasking later this summer is likely to propel sales even more.
