Apple may be a lot more confident in the iPad than we thought. According to DigiTimes, the house of Jobs has ordered 65 million 9.7-inch iPad screens for 2011. If true, this means Apple is confident that 2011 will be a banner year for the iPad. Most estimates put iPad sales in the neighborhood of 45-48 million units for 2011.
In November alone, Apple reportedly bought 1.5 million screens from LG and 1.2 million from Samsung. Estimates for 2010 put iPad sales at 16.75 million since its debut in April. ”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,” writes DigiTimes.
