1M BlackBerry PlayBooks to be Shipped Q1

Quanta Computer has begun volume production of RIM’s PlayBook tablets with shipments in the first quarter of 2011 expected to top one million units competing head-to-head with the 700,000-800,000 Xoom tablets to be rolled out by Motorola, according to industry sources. Quanta declined to comment.

A number of executives from Taiwan-based notebook makers have given recommendations on PlayBook’s OS and users interface after they tried on the gadget at CES, the sources noted.

RIM will launch the PlayBook with Wi-FI functionality in March before coming out with a 3G version that will enable Push Mail functions. The smartphone vendor will launch a 4G-enabled PlayBook in cooperation with Sprint Nextel in the second quarter.

Motorola plans will roll out Wi-Fi and 3G-enabled Xoom tablets, which are outsourced to Compal Electronics, in the first quarter and then a LTE version in the second quarter with Verizon Wireless, the sources indicated.
