iPad Shipments May Have Topped 2M in March

Long lines and shipping delays aside, Apple may have shipped between 2.4 and 2.6 million iPads in March. Apple hasn’t offered an official figure for iPad 2 sales yet, so word of the high shipping number comes via unnamed upstream parts suppliers.

The unnamed sources, according to DigiTimes, claim Apple is on track for somewhere between 4 million and 4.2 million iPads a month, or some 12 million units during the second quarter.

Apple began shipping the iPad 2 in March, and quickly sold out in retail stores while pushing online orders out to five weeks. While inventory seems to be getting a little easier to come by, many stores are still seeing iPad 2 lines on a regular basis.

The sources DigiTimes cites aren’t always the most reliable, so until Apple offers up its own numbers, the quantity of iPad 2 units shipped should be treated as just an estimate.
