For sometime, we have been hearing about the shortages of component to manufacture the iPad 2 due to devastation in Japan now seems to be coming in place.
HIS iSuppli also reported that a company expected to supply the hardened glass overlay for the iPad 2 has admitted that one of its factories suffered earthquake damage and another was affected by fire.
According to iSuppli analyst Wayne Lam,
“There are two major types of hardened glass that could be used by the iPad 2. One is Corning’s Gorilla Glass, and the other is Asahi Glass Co.’s Dragontrail Glass. Both behave very similarly. They’re still glass, but they’re very flexible, hardened and scratch-proof.”
