Apple’s iPad has been selling well – rumors of a successor have also been around for some time.
DigiTimes now reports the following:
Shipments of 9.7-inch iPad panels from LG Display reached 1.5 million units in November 2010, and fellow supplier Samsung Electronics’ shipments reached 1.2 million units for the month.
LG Display is estimated to land orders for 35 million iPad panels in 2011, and Samsung and Chimei Innolux (CMI), who is scheduled to join Apple’s iPad supply chain in the first quarter of 2011, will each receive orders for 15 million units.
Given that there were iPad shortages in Austria before Christmas, this makes sense. However, it IMHO doesn’t confirm that a successor is on the way…
