Apple Expects iPad 2 to Outsell Market Estimates

Touch panel shipment estimates reveal that Apple is planning to sell far more iPad 2s than the market expects.

DigiTimes reports:

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.

Based on these estimates, iPad panel shipments (including first and second generation models) will reach 65 million units in 2011, which is significantly higher than market estimates of 45-48 million units for the year.

The latest iPad 2 rumors have the device sporting a sleeker shape, a camera, and a wide-range speaker.
