Apple may need to delay international release of iPad.

LG, which is a supplier of the display for the iPad, cannot keep up with the demand.

LG Display CEO Kwon Young-soo has stated that "Demand (from Apple) keeps growing and we can't meet it all. Apple may have to delay launches of the iPad for some countries due to tight component supplies and strong demand.
We are considering increasing production lines for iPad products but overall supply is likely to remain tight until early next year."

Research firm iSuppli raised this week its forecast for iPad sales by 82 percent to nearly 13 million units this year.  The release in Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand and Singapore this Friday, July 23rd, is not affected by this but other countries would be.
