ipad 2 promo

Consumers and tablet broadband providers are hoping Apple can resolve the iPad 2 supply problems that have plagued the new device since its worldwide launch on March 25th.

According to Apple, supplies of the iPad 2 are now almost meeting demand after many early adopters were hit with a three-to-four week delay to their pre-orders.

However, many Apple enthusiasts are still being kept waiting, having to hold on for between two and three weeks longer for their new tablet device.

As well as affecting shoppers in the US, the iPad 2 delays have hit customers across Europe - including in the UK.

Part of the problem appears to be rising demand among business customers.

According to the Financial Times, companies both small and large are planning to use the iPad 2 to make the transition to a paperless office.

Simon Small, of software firm Diligent, told the news provider: "Almost all large organisations are now requesting their board papers on the iPad.

"The big problem Apple faces in the short term is meeting enterprise demand for the device."
