• 富士康的发言人对《彭博新闻》（Bloomberg News）表示，目前经过抛光的iPad机壳还够用一周多的时间，因此抛光车间在停工接受安全检查时，整机组装业务可照常进行。
• 分析师仍然在设法对此次事件对苹果销售的影响进行评估。“由于产量问题，加之配件短缺，iPad 2一直供不应求。”摩根大通公司（J.P. Morgan）的高库尔•哈里哈仁对《华尔街日报》（Wall Street Journal）表示。“这很可能会导致iPad近期缺货加剧，至少是在第二财季。”
There were several developments over the weekend following the explosion that killed three and injured 15 in a factory in southwest China that builds iPads for Apple (AAPL). (See Inside the Apple iPad factory.)
• The third death was confirmed. Six of the injured have been sent home. The rest are still hospitalized.
• The blast was traced to combustible dust that had collected in a "polishing workshop" duct in a recently completed factory complex in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province.
• Taiwan-based Foxconn, which built the plants in part to meet demand for Apple's iPads, has suspended polishing operations in all its factories, including in Shenzhen, China, where it runs the world's largest electronics manufacturing facilities.
• A Foxconn spokesperson told Bloomberg News that the company has more than a week's supply of polished cases on hand and that assembly can continue while it performs safety checks.
• Foxconn's stock dropped as much as 5% Monday; Apple shares opened lower in Europe.
• Analysts are still trying to assess the effect on Apple's sales. "The supply of iPad 2 has been running tight due to manufacturing yield issues and component shortages," J.P. Morgan's Gokul Hariharan told the Wall Street Journal. "This is likely to accentuate [the iPad] shortage in the near term, at least in the second quarter."
