It was heard earlier today that Apple has ordered panels for its iPad from its screen supplier, LG. The main reasons for these are the impending release of the iPad – 5 and the iPad mini 2, the former followed quickly by the latter. The iPad mini 2 uses the retina panel technology. Almost two and half to three million sets of the tablet are going to be released this year end, probably be delayed by a few months and get a 2014 launch, but again, it’s a rumor. LG, the maker of the retina display panels is making new progress, promising spectacular display of the Apple baby.
October, which was initially marked for the release of the tablet, may not be when the action really happens. The launch of the iPad 5 in September could likely delay the mini’s release. However, LG’s report denied these rumors. Last week it was said that the delay could be caused by the indecision of Apple whether to implement the retina displays in the mini or not; but now we know for sure that these are definitely coming. Yet another news that reached the ears of many a gadget freak is that, the shortage of these retina panels could be what’s causing the delay. One particular report addressing this concern stated that, two versions of the iPad mini could be released, the earlier one without the retina display, and the later one, with the same.
From all these, one can conclude that a retina display device is definitely coming, but it could be early 2014, practically. This tablet would appear thinner, feel lighter and sport an almost bezel-free design. Other upsides of this gadget are a better processor and the obvious display. The iPad 5, however will sport the latest OGS (One Glass Solution) touch panel made by the Taiwanese company TPK. It would be tough competition and a cause of joy for all the Apple fans out there to see which tab is going to be the best this year(or next!)
