Last week we heard that Motorola is aiming to ship 800,000 or more of its Xoom tablet in Q1. Aren’t we like halfway through Q1 already? But I digress. Now RIM is showing its manufacturing volume cards. All one million of ‘em! Yes, RIM has placed its orders with manufacturers, and is hoping to ship a million Playbooks in Q1, according to Digitimes. That’s a lot! But as we’ve seen, the Playbook is actually quite a compelling device, and with other options on the market, consumers might actually be shopping around instead of driving straight to the Apple store.
