Shipments of tablet computers iPad Air 2 largest authorized Resellers in the United States are reduced. It is reported Bloomberg citing sources familiar with the situation. Reducing the supply associated with the upcoming presentation of the new generation of the Apple tablet, scheduled for March this year.
According to the publication, stores MacMall, Price Guide and B&H is faced with serious shortage of the iPad Air 2. In particular, MacMall there are no models in silver and gray colors with a memory of 32 GB from B&H “no longer possible to order” 128-gigatube model 128 GB.
The decrease in the supply of tablet computers by Apple hints at a curtailment or even a complete discontinuation of the tablets 2014 release in favor of new models. It is assumed that the presentation of the updated iPad will be held next month.
The announcement of the new tablets expected in the spring Apple press conference. Presumably, this year the Corporation will join the line of three models: the “budget” 9.7-inch iPad, 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2 and another radically new 10.5-inch tablet with a display “in the entire front panel”.
The intention of Apple to expand the iPad lineup associated with the fact that tablet computers with a screen more than 10 inches are very popular in the educational and commercial sector of the USA. The fact is that 9.7-inch iPad is perceived as too small, and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is too expensive for such institutions.
Presentation of novelties expected in one of the days from March 20 to 24. Given that traditionally Apple holds its event on Tuesday, we can assume that a future spring event will be held on March 21. Sources indicate that this event will be on a smaller scale than the previous presentations and will probably be held in the headquarters of Apple.
