Apple to order 65 million iPad screens in 2011?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

Sales of Apple’s iPad device will certainly grow in 2011 according to a report from DigiTimes. So it will need more screens. LG Display could receive orders for 35 million iPad panels from Apple in 2011, with Samsung and Chimei Innolux (CMI), who are scheduled to join Apple’s iPad supply chain in the first quarter of 2011, each possibly receiving orders for as many as 15 million units.

Apple’s 9.7 inch screen is making it difficult for competitors to match and the iPad’s screen size will likely lower component pricing in a way that only benefits Apple. This forces competitors to design and build 5 and 7 inch screens that don’t benefit from the scale of Apple’s high volume sales.

University report warns that Apple's glossy screens are a dangerDanger. Danger Will Robinson. Apple’s screens are a silent danger just waiting to mess you up. So says an advisory recently published by Queensland University of Technology, which predicts a rash of injuries as a result of users straining to get a clear look at Apple’s “high gloss” screens, due to the ergonomically unsafe postures and positions that result.

If you have such a display, Queensland Tech offers many suggestions for staying healthy: One is placing the monitor so that screen is at a 90 degree angle to overhead lighting, another is closing the curtains or blinds to minimize glare, and adjusting the contrast / turning down the brightness. Most importantly, do not panic!

Rubber OLED developed for flexible, stretchable screens

Rubber OLED developed for flexible, stretchable screensElectrical engineering researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a flexible, stretchable OLED that acts like rubber. It doesn’t tear or break when stretched. They produce the material by spraying a layer of carbon nanotubes with a fluoro-rubber compound, which creates a rubbery, conducive material.

At 10-centimeters square, the current monochrome display prototype has a resolution of just 256 pixels and can apparently be folded about 1,000 times with out degrading, falling apart, or tearing. In short, our future may be filled with rubber bouncing balls that have OLED screens.
