DigiTimes analyst Kuo Ming-Chi recently claimed that Apple has reached a new performance, shipping around 1.2 million iPads per month. The expert also mentioned that monthly shipments could reach 2.5 million units by the year end. Such figures were obtained from the iPad supply-chain manufacturer, LG.

The company shipped between 800,000 and 900,000 9.7 inch LCD displays to the Cupertino giant in May. Ming-Chi estimated that Apple has to pay around $80 to $90 per unit. Keep in mind that these are all estimates and predictions, so this is not the official version of the story.

Assuming the sold iPads are the 16GB WiFi versions, they’ll bring around $1.25 billion in gross sales every month, which is huge.
