Hon Hai boosting iPad 2 production?

Hon Hai boosting iPad 2 production? Component maker Hon Hai Precision has reportedly upped its projected shipment figures for the iPad 2.
Due to strong demand, projected shipments have been increased for the Q3 by 42.8 percent.

Apple sold 9.25 million iPad 2 units in the Q2, after a slow Q1 with 4.69 million sold.

Despite the tragedy in Japan, Apple says their supply chain has not been affected, and if they could have built more, the demand was so high they would have sold out of those, as well.

Research group iSuppli, including Hon Hai's updated estimates, now assumes Apple will sell 44.2 million units in 2011.

Apple has about a 70 percent share in the tablet market.
