Sales of Apple’s iPad 2 tablet are set to explode in the third quarter according to Hong Kong-based research firm CLSA. Citing LCD sales data from DisplaySearch, the firm thinks Apple will unload 14.4 million iPad 2 tablets in the third quarter this year, well above the consensus of between 10 and 12 million units.
In the second fiscal quarter of 2011 Apple sold 4.69 million iPads. In the third quarter of 2010 they sold 3.27 million iPads. That’s a massive increase.
