to Digitimes, Lenovo has plans to ship 1.5-2 million tablets in 2011. The figure includes around 400K-500K ThinkPad models and 1-1.5 million IdeaPad K1, A1 and other consumer models.
Sources claim that Lenovo is serious in trying to snatch a piece of the global tablet market. However, component makers are somewhat skeptical when it comes to actually achieving these goals. Tablets have been a tough nut for anyone but Apple, but this Android community is gaining some momentum. One can only hope that Lenovo can do better than others.
