10 Million eBook Readers in 2010

AU Optronics (AUO), the top LCD manufacturer in Taiwan so far, estimates global ebook reader shipments to top 10 million units in 2010. C.T. Liu, VP of AUO and Chairman of SiPix, is quite optimistic as most estimates are currently around 6 to 7 million units. SiPix will do its share: ramp its second production line of electronic paper displays (EPDs) to around 100K-200K units per month starting February 2010. AUO also has an agreement with Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) to manufacture plastic-substrate-based flexible displays. Source: DIGITIMES
