Apple iPad 2: 2.6 million sold already?

Suppliers struggling to keep up as demand for iPad 2 continues.

Apple took delivery of between 2.4 and 2.6 million iPad 2s in March, according to sources at the Cupertino company’s Far East suppliers. With supplies drying up across the globe throughout last month, it’s safe to say that Apple actually sold most of those to iPad 2-hungry punters.

There’s been a shortage of iPad 2s available ever since the tablet launched. Currently the UK Apple store has a two to three week wait for all versions of the slate. Today’s figures suggest that it’s demand, not lack of supply, that’s meant the wait for the iPad 2 has been so long for some consumers.

What’s more, the same source at Apple’s suppliers claims that Jobs and co will be getting in excess of 4 million iPad 2s in April, as the company looks to satisfy demand and ramp up sales.

Apple is yet to reveal official sales figures for the iPad 2. But with the Motorola Xoom said to be struggling to break the 100,000 mark, it’s clear that the new Apple slate is the best-selling tablet out there.
