DigiTimes briefly reports that Foxconn is apparently set to produce 20 million iPad 2 units during the current quarter, a significant boost over the prior quarter and even over earlier estimates for this quarter.
For the third quarter, Foxconn is expected to ship 20 million units of iPad 2 to Apple, a growth of 60% sequentially, and the orders should be the major growth driver for the company in the second half.
Two months ago, the publication claimed that Apple was targeting shipments of 12-14 million units for the quarter. A revision of that figure up to 20 million units would be a substantial jump, potentially calling the accuracy of the report into question.
Apple last month announced that it sold 9.25 million iPads during the second quarter as it essentially sold every iPad it could make.
