Interesting news day, don’t you think? Earlier today a rumor out of Taiwan posited that the iPad won’t ship until June and now here come “multiple [ed-unnamed] sources” claiming the mothership has an iPad 2-flavored event planned for next week.
All Things D claims to have heard from multiple sources that the long-anticipated iPad 2 media event will happen Wednesday, March 2 at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center. No, official invitations haven’t been sent yet, but the blog Walt built isn’t in the habit of being wrong on Apple rumors.
According to several sources close to the situation, the Wednesday date in a little more than a week is firm and will take place in San Francisco, the scene of many such Apple events.”
Earlier today, sources in Taiwan reported that Apple had delayed iPad 2 shipments, due to manufacturing bottlenecks at Hon Hai (a.k.a. Foxconn) until June.
[u] All Things D, quoting sources in a position to know, reports that the rumored manufacturing bottlenecks don’t in fact exist and all is well with the iPad 2.
Are these two rumors related? Well, if you were Apple and wanted to counter a widely published rumor out of Taiwan, who would you turn to…
What’s your take?
