Tablet Display Production Ramp

According to research house Displaybank the production of Tablet PC Panels grew 28% from the end of April to the end of May.

We are just starting to hit the ramp phase for the Tablet business. Today we hear from Cisco and their "Cius" Android Tablet. Yes, Cisco is getting in the game with everyone else.

The holiday selling season is right around the corner and all those products that were announced earlier this year are about to hit the shelves of a store near you.

Here are a few more notable points from the press release:

  • Total Tablet PC panel production rose to 6.43 million units - up 28% month-to-month.

  • 5.38 million 9.7-inch panel displays - the size used in the iPad - increased 26% month-to-month.

  • 10.1-inch panel shipments recorded 986K units, showing 37% month-to-month increase. The panels will be used in Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1.

And now, a bit of eye-candy (click image to enlarge):

Is it really a surprise? 9.7 inch panel production is 84% of the market! That really speaks volumes (pun intended) about the dominance of the iPad.
