Gene Munster: Apple sells all the iPads it manages to build – Macitynet.it
"Apple is selling all the iPads that it manages to build" this is the effect phrase in conclusion of a new report presented by Giper Munster of Piper Jaffray. The analyst states that his estimates initially made on iPad sales may be lower than actual sales.
According to the latest data examined by Munster Cupertino, it may have underestimated the initial demand for iPad, to which a possible limitation of supplies has added or has contributed in part. However, according to Munster, the iPad construction problems, highlighted in several rumors in recent days, are of minor importance. This conclusion deduced on the basis of the slight delay for deliveries of the second iPad delivery. For buyers who have tried to order iPad since last Saturday, Apple has in fact communicated a delivery date scheduled for April 12. So a few days after the first deliveries confirmed for the launch day, after tomorrow, April 3.
Munster then compares the launch of the iPad with that of the iPhone in which 270 thousand units were sold: for the tablet, the analyst expects sales of between 200 thousand and 300 thousand iPads. Ultimately Munster now convinced that the initial forecasts for 900 thousand iPads sold by the month of June and 2.7 million pieces by 2010 are very conservative estimates of the real numbers that Apple could total.
Recall that other expert analysts in the Apple business have provided significantly higher sales forecasts: Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi expects 5 million iPads by 2010, while Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty expects 6 million sales for the same period.
