2010 iPad Shipment Estimate Doubles

2010 iPad Shipment Estimate Doubles

Overseas suppliers are now expected to ship as many as 10 million iPads this year, despite earlier predictions that that number would only be around 5 million.

As reported by Cnet, investment group Morgan Stanley informed clients that it now predicts between 8 million and 10 million iPads to be shipped in 2010, with 2.5 million of those expected in just the first 3 months.

That's a big jump considering most other analysts still put their estimates at under 5 million, and Morgan Stanley itself, just earlier this month, predicted a 5-million target as well.

However, sales of the iPad are raging. Apple is already unable to fulfill all the pre-order requests for a launch unit, and the limited leftover supply to retail stores is expected to vanish minutes after the device is released on Saturday.

So although the iPad met some harsh criticism when it was first announced, it looks like Apple has its hands on another winner here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
