Update: RIM BlackPad to be Manufactured by Quanta

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
