Japan Crisis Threatens iPad2 Supplies

Apple may see some shortened iPad supplies in the aftermath of the Japan quake. While the company has relied solely on Foxconn, a China based company, for the construction of their products, some of the components that go into their new iPad come from Japan.

If you were hoping to get your hands on the new device, there’s a chance you’ll be waiting even longer than usual for an Apple product. As it turns out, the batteries, compass, memory chips, and a few other components are all constructed in Japan. With Japan still recovering from the disaster last week, it’s been assumed that there would be fallout in a few industries, technology being one of them.

With lines running out the doors to get the limited supply of iPads and shipments being affected by the Japan quake, you might just want to wait for iPad3.
