Apple recalling some Verizon iPad 2 units with duplicate MEIDs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Apple has confirmed that an "extremely small number" of iPad 2 units for Verizon have been recalled because they were accidentally shipped with identical electronic serial numbers.

After reports emerged on Friday that a limited recall was taking place, an Apple spokesperson acknowledged the issue, AllThingsD reports.

Duplicate [Mobile Equipment Identifier] numbers were flashed onto an extremely small number of iPad 2 units for the Verizon 3G network, an Apple representative said on Friday. Most of the devices had yet to reach the market, though a few had already been sold to customers. Apple declined to give more detailed information on the number of iPads recalled.

Apple announced this week that iPad sales had reached the 25 million unit milestone, which should result in roughly 8 million iPads shipped in the June quarter. That number would exceed analysts expectations, many of whom predict Apple will sell around 7 million units.

The iPad 2 has been wildly successful, with Apple selling the device as fast as it can make it. Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook said in April that the company faces "the mother of all backlogs" due to "staggering" demand for the iPad 2.

However, in spite of the sell-out iPad 2 launch, Wall Street was disappointed by iPad sales in the March quarter, which came to just 4.69 million as Apple drew down the original iPad and ramped up production of the second-generation tablet.

I have two of these iPad 2's they are talking about....took me 4 hours to get Verizon to set them up right. I wonder if they will want them back now that they work right.

I hope not it took forever to get them in the first place.

AAPL stock will no doubt react to this negatively although it doesn't seem react to good news these days!

Sure it does. It goes down with good news just like with bad. That's reacting. \
