Apple to Increase iPad Shipments By One Million/Month?

Apple is reportedly increasing its iPad production by an extra one million units per month, according to a DigiTimes report.

Cando, a subsidiary of AU Optronics (AUO), is scheduled to start shipping 9.7-inch touch sensors for Apple's iPad from its newly reformed 4.5G production line in September-October 2010. Overall output of the newly reformed 4.5G plant will be mainly for iPad touch sensors with a monthly capacity of almost one million units.

Monthly capacity of the 4.5G line is 70,000 glass substrates, and each substrate can cut 16 units of 9.7-inch iPad touch sensors, which gives about one million units per month.

This corroborates a previous report from Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty who said Apple is currently building 2 million iPads/month and wants to increase this to 3 million/month for C4Q10.
