iPad 2 Shipping in February 2011, in Time for April Launch?

Foxconn intends to start shipping finished iPad 2 units by the end of February, according to some inside sources, as a way of preparing the April launch. Part suppliers confirm the info, also mentioning an initial order of 400,000 to 600,000 Apple slates, coming from the main Shenzhen factory. Early April is still in the books as the release date for the iPad 2…

Apple wanted to start production in January, but Digitimes claims that the Cupertino giant has been crippled by the tests of the new firmware, that aren’t completed yet. We also find out that Apple is making more iPads than the number of units they’re selling, but they might do that to prepare for the holiday season.

Also, it’s a good a idea to stock on slates, since the product is going to launch in Latin America and South Korea soon, so it’ll score pretty high sales in these regions. If you’re interested in figures, 6 million iPads were shipped this summer and 4.19 million were sold, so Apple must only place a last order of about 1.6 million slates in January before slowing or stopping production.
