Apple Reduces Production Volume Targets to Keep iPad 2 on Schedule?

Apple has reportedly reduced their iPad 2 production targets to keep the launch of the new tablet on schedule.

A recent report claimed Apple shipments of the iPad 2 may have been delayed from April until June due to production bottlenecks at Hon Hai. This report was widely discredited by several sources.

DigiTimes now reports that its sources say Apple has chosen to drop production volume targets to keep the tablet on schedule.

The sources pointed out that Apple still maintains its plans to mass produce the iPad 2 by the end of February; however, affected by low touch panel yields and an adjustment in specifications, Apple's production volume forecast for the first quarter is expected to drop from 400,000-600,000 units originally to only 300,000-400,000 units.

The sources pointed out that most upstream component makers still have not yet received notification from Apple to delay shipments; therefore they believe the mass production schedule is still as originally planned.
