Apple sees big demand for iPad
We need to say right off the top here that the sources that DigiTimes has are not always accurate. That said, the publication's sources in the LCD industry are telling it that LG shipped 1.5 million LCDs for the iPad in November and Samsung shipped 1.2 million screens.

The shipments for 2011 are looking to be huge as well. The sources claim that LG Display has landed orders for 35 million iPad screens for the iPad and Samsung has orders for 15 million units. Apple has also reportedly added a third screen supplier.
That third supplier is Chimei Innolux and it will make 15 million screens for 2011 as well. The total screens point to Apple planning to ship in the area of 65 million iPads in 2011. That is significantly higher than the 45-48 million analysts predicted.
