iPad Keyboard Dock not shipping until May 2010
Apple may not have experienced the iPad delay some analysts predicted, but it seems their accessory supply chain is falling short. Several of the company’s own add-ons for the iPad – including the iPad Keyboard Dock – are not expected to begin shipping until a month after the WiFi iPad itself.
At launch, the iPad Keyboard Dock was listed as shipping in mid-April; that has now been amended to May. Meanwhile the spare iPad power adapter will also only begin shipping in May, having previously been expected in late-April.
The official Apple iPad Case has also slipped its estimate, from “by April 3rd” to mid-April. Both the iPad Dock and iPad to VGA convertor are still on track – at least for the moment – for an April 3rd launch.
