Apple Certifying iPad 3 Components, AMOLED Unlikely

There are market rumors that iPad 3 will adopt AMOLED panels and Apple management has been visiting Samsung Electronics for this matter. However, industry sources said this is unlikely to happen and iPad 3 will still adopt 9.7-inch LCD panels, reports Digitimes.

Apple has begun certifying components for iPad 3 and many Taiwan-based makers are actively participating. Some makers have already landed certification such as Radiant Opto-Electronics with LED backlight units, according to industry sources.

Taiwan-based component makers for backlight modules and light bars have received certification from Apple, however, the certification of panels is still in progress, added industry sources.

“South-Korea based panel firms such Samsung and LG Display have been panel suppliers for Apple. “The certification of panels from Taiwan-based Chimei Innolux is nearly done.””

According to component makers, the timing for the launch of iPad 3 should be in 2012.

Taiwan-based firms think iPad 2 will become the mainstream and Apple will lower its price to compete with other tablet PCs.
