Research: Tablet Shipments Fall 28 pct In 2011 First Quarter [zdnet.co.uk]
Global tablet shipments in the first quarter of 2011 fell 28 percent from the fourth quarter and failed to hit expectations, according to research firm IDC.
Tablet shipments hit 7.2 million units worldwide. Although that tally failed to meet expectations, IDC still raised its 2011 shipment forecast to 53.5 million from 50.4 million.

The figures suggest the tablet market may prove to be just as seasonal as the PC industry and other electronics products.
