RIM Expects to Sell 1 Million Playbooks in Q1 2011
By on January 14th, 2011

Research in Motion has apparently ordered shipments of close to 1 million Blackberry Playbook tablets. Quanta Computer has begun production of the tablets, and RIM expects to sell them in Q1 2011.

RIM plans to launch the Playbook in March with a 3G version coming later. Honestly, 1 million Playbook sales seem a bit too ambitious now, with a flood of Android tablets coming soon.

Even Motorola expects to sell about 800,000 Xoom tablets, but that is more realistic, as Android is a much more popular OS than the QNX based OS in the Playbook. Even HP plans to launch a webOS tablet soon and Apple may launch the iPad 2 in April.
