Here’s some wonderful piece of rumor for the New Year! Apple has donned the garb of the most optimistic company as the New Year kicks off, by lining up production of at least 10 million tablets. Mind you, the number talks of a product which is still unannounced.
It may be tough to believe the rumor, but then considering that the grapevine has been triggered by none other than former Google China president Kai-Fu Lee (Lee worked for Apple more than ten years ago and left Google earlier this year), we are forced to give it a positive thought. Going by a blog Lee wrote, Apple plans to sell nearly twice as many tablets as it did iPhones in the product’s first year. Astounding numbers, indeed!
It is expected that the upcoming Apple tablet would be looking at a largely untapped market.
Compared with the iPhone ad the iPod, which turned out to be unique and popular products even before launch, the Apple tablet might find it tough to make a foray into customers’ minds. This because, Apple hasn’t even told consumers as to how it would look like, or when it would arrive.
All said the 10-million number could seem to be a bit ambitious. But you never know. It is an Apple piece of work we are talking about.
