Chinese-language website Apple Daily has been reported that Research In Motion (RIM)'s BlackPad will be manufactured by Taiwan-based notebook manufacturer, Quanta Computer. Quanta will begin shipping in September but as we previously reported, the BlackPad will be launched in November 2010.
Rumored price is $499 to compete against Apple's lowest-priced iPad. RIM apparently has high hopes as Quanta is expected to ship 2 million units this year and 8 million in 2011. Quanta also will be manufacturing Tablets/Slates for Acer
