Digitimes today refutes stock manipulator analyst Peter Misek’s assertion that parts shortages will cause delays in shipping the iPad and possibly a smaller, US-only rollout.

In response to reports that initial volumes of Apple’s iPad in late March will be lower than originally planned and the launch will be only in the US market because production by Foxconn Electronics has been delayed, Foxconn’s component suppliers have said their supplies are on schedule and Foxconn should be able to ship 600,000-700,000 iPads in March and one million units in April.

Foxconn declined to comment publicly, though I think this proxy communication by their suppliers to Digitimes could be construed as such.  

The iPad is set to go on sale on or around March 26th at 6:00pm.

Also: That is a lot of iPads!
