LG Can't Make 'Em Fast Enough

LG might soon be on the receiving end of angry emails from Steve Jobs, thanks to company chief exec Kwon Young-soo telling the media he can't meet demand for the flat panels Apple keeps ordering for its rampant iPad.

Rather worryingly for potential iPad buyers—and manufacturers of rival tablets hoping to launch this year and next with LG panels inside—Young-soo says LG won't be able to completely hit targets until Q2 of 2011. Here are his humble words:

"Apple is ordering more and more displays but it isn't something we can be able to respond quickly ... I am not sure whether we can be able to meet orders from other companies for similar products, but we will be able to supply the displays without fail... by the second quarter of next year"

I have not seen a single iPad in public yet. I'm in Columbus and live around OSU. Ride the bus frequently as well. Just wondering if anyone else has the same "Where is it?" sense as I do. I thought it would be all over the place here. Yes yes yes I dislike Apple and blah blah blah but I'm being serious. I haven't seen one yet in person. Reading all these sales talks and stuff I thought I would have at least seen one.
