Tablet LCDs: seven-inchers outsell 9.7in panels

Kindle Fire burning iPad? Or iPad 3 in motion?

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Shipments of 7in LCD screens surpassed those of 9.7in panels in November, it has been claimed.

You can read that one of two ways. Either the combined sales of Amazon's Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble's Nook, RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook - not a big contribution there, natch - et al, are exceeding those of Apple's iPad - pretty much the only 9.7in screen device now - or…

…Apple is severely reducing its orders for current 9.7in panels as it prepares to switch to new, quad-resolution screens for the iPad 3.

DigiTimes' display panel industry moles favour the latter, and suggest 9.7in orders will pick up this month or early in 2012 as iPad 3 production kicks in in earnest. ®
