Compal is expecting to ship 3.8 million tablets this year; of that number, it expects 90% of them to be running Android with ARM-based processors. But, we don't know under what brands these tablets will be shipping just yet. This is another another sign that 2011 is gearing up to be the year of the Android tablet.
Who is Compal, you ask? Compal is an original design manufacturer based out of Taiwan. Companies like Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Acer, and Toshiba contract them to design and build laptops, monitors, and now tablets.
This, indeed, will be a very exciting year for those seeking more options for tablets.
