Apple and Samsung to ship 110 million tablets in 2013, double all other international brands combined
Apple and Samsung tablet will dominate the market this year as the two companies are expected to ship a combined total of 110 million tablets in 2013, according to DigiTimes supply sources in Taiwan. The information comes from panel makers reporting growing orders from both international and Chinese vendors.

Brand-name international companies apart from Samsung and Apple are expected to ship 50 million tablets this year, while Chinese white box tablet shipments are said to be double that amount at 100 million for the year.

The majority of white box tablet makers are located in China and produce affordable Android tablets, selling them for a fairly low margin because of the fierce rivalry in the market.

Manufacturers like AU Optronics, Innolux Corporation and Chunghwa Picture Tubes are expected to grow their profits as a result of the higher tablet production this year.

Tablets are interesting but I don't need an ARM tablet (Android or iPad) because I already have a Smartphone. And it's VERY HARD to resell. I'll wait until there are usefull x86 Tablets to replace my laptop.

Such volume. Looks like too many people upgrade their devices as soon as something new is coming out.
