Apple iPad 3 Shipments May Be En Route to US Already
There is certainly no shortage of information and rumors coming in about the new Apple iPad 3 set to be announced March 7th 2012. To make an addition to the statements, an insider got a hold of a photo of Foxconn shipments being placed into a cargo hold aboard an airplane headed for three US locations. Those locations are Chicago, New York and Los Angeles.
To back these claims up of iPad 3 shipments en route to the US, are some shipping documents found on Weibo's forums seen below. The documents point out that the cargo is from Foxconn, and are requiring higher than normal and unusual security over the goods. The information is translated as follows:
Friends broke the news: Chengdu International Airport at major international cargo charter flights, cargo owners demanding security, from CTU takeoff by stop PVG Shanghai, and then directly to ORD Chicago, the JFK New York, LAX in Los Angeles, March 9, completed before transport. According to the privately disclosed the Chengdu F production for the U.S. A company’s latest products…
Received friends inside information, Chengdu International Airport night cargo charter flights, said the owner of the security demanding, and in private that the Chengdu Fu X Kang new products. Takes note of the location of the United States (ORD Chicago, JFK New York, LAX in Los Angeles)
Our company started undertake a load of top-secured cargo. The owner has extreme requirements for the security. In order to prevent the cargo from being dragged on the airport ramp for too long, as well as shortening the time the cargo stay on the airport ramp, we hereby require XXXX to schedule all the XXX cargo planes from Feb. 26 to Mar. 9. to XXX slot.
Looks like a March 9th arrival should be when these three US cities receive the shipments from Foxconn. Which would be just two days after the rumored Apple Announcement event. With shipments arriving around March 9th and being distributed among major retail chains and outlets, it may be that we could be lining up to buy an iPad 3 around the third week of March, which is also the store arrival rumor.
