A week after shipping times were cut to 3-5 business days, they shrank again to 1-3
Apple's (AAPL) has been having trouble keeping up with demand for the iPad 2 from the day the product launched in early March.
Shipping times were stuck at 1-2 weeks from mid-April to July 8, when they were cut to 3-5 days.
Reader Howard Kaplan noticed Saturday morning that they have since fallen to 1-3 business days, which is about as fast as Apple can get any product out the door.
According to the Wall Street Journal, an unveiling is scheduled for March 2
[UPDATE: Reuters, citing an unnamed source "familiar with the matter," has retracted its report of an iPad 2 delay. The Loop's Jim Dalrymple, citing no sources, has declared both delay reports "not true." And All Things Digital's Kara Swisher has announced that Apple will hold an iPad 2 event on March 2. No source for that one either. MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 22, 2011 8:09 AM ET
