iPad 2 Shipping Time Reduced To 3-5 Days

It appears that Apple has managed to solve its iPad 2 supply issue since the company’s official website states that shipping time for every tablet model has been reduced to 3-5 days, TapScape (opens in new tab) reports.

This is huge progress taking into account the fact that customers had to wait up to five weeks to receive their iPad 2 in the first months following the tablet's release.

On the other hand, the iPad 2 is still “unavailable” at Best Buy and Walmart, while it takes between one and two weeks for AT&T and MacMall to deliver an iPad 2 order.

Therefore, customers who really want to grab their iPad 2 fast, should place their orders via Apple’s official website.

Apple shipped five million touch panels for the iPad last month and is planning to maintain the same volume in July too, as the company is looking to provide between 12 and 14 million tablets in Q3, it has been reported.

The iPad 2 is currently the most popular tablet on the market with a market share of 56%, a recent Canaccord Genuity survey revealed. The same report indicated that Apple's tablet domination would continue right through 2012, projecting a mere drop of 5% in market share for 2012, despite the plethora of tablet rivals likely to enter on the scene.
