iPad screen shipments hint production might reach impressive 65mln units in 2011
Shipments of 9.7-inch iPad displays from Asia are reaching record high numbers as LG shipped 1.5 million in November, while Samsung registered 1.2 million shipped units for the same period. Some early estimates showed that at such pace iPad shipments might reach the whopping 65 million units in 2011.

The number includes both the current first-gen and the upcoming second-gen version of Apple's tablet and is much higher than the previously anticipated figure of around 48 million. LG alone will ship 35 million screens and Samsung and Chimei Innolux will add up another 15 million each. Chimei Innolux is expected to join the supply chain in the first quarter of next year.

These numbers are still just an estimate, but if they come true they will surely silence some of the bees' buzz around the upcoming Motorola Honeycomb tablet. With just about everyone coming out with a tablet next year, do you think that Apple might be overly optimistic about the future of its iPad? The company has an overwhelming market share and iPad touch panel shipments for 2010 are expected to reach nearly 17 million, but that might not be enough in the long run.
