According to iSuppli market research, it appears the Apple iPad 2 may have a production shortfall of nearly 500,000 units in the 2nd quarter due to the fatal explosion at Foxconn late last week. Total iPad 2 production capacity at the Chengdu site is around 500,000 units per month. Should the explosion result in a production shutdown until the end of June a production stoppage of half a million units could result.
A production stoppage determination is still pending investigation, but the livelihood of the workers and safety should certainly come before the bottom line.
