Submission + - The iPad 2 and the tablet PC bubble  Mobile (mobile-computing-news.co.uk)

satuon writes: Runaway sales of the initial iPad led to a multitude of competitors joining the fray. Now runaway sales of the iPad 2 has led to tech analysts world over believing that we’re less than 12 months away from a tablet PC bubble that is going to severely hurt several technology companies.

All Things D reports that J.P. Morgan estimates 81 million tablets will be manufactured in 2011. The problem is only 48 million of those will actually be shipped to retailers

This is due to the difference between the adoption rate of Apple’s tablet and those of its competitors being so vast. Many will be caught with their pants down and tablet supplies they cannot sell stuck in warehouses. This will be a class A tablet PC bubble.
