  • LG iPad 2 Display Problems, Samsung and Others Pick Up Production Slack

    Digitimes is reporting that LG hasn't been able to meet Apple's demand for the 9.7" displays the iPad 2 depends on, forcing Apple to rely on Samsung and Chimei Innolux for additional supplies.

    LG's problems stem from quality control. The company failed to meet their productions goals by 1 million units, mostly due to light leak issues that slowed production. Apple relying on Samsung to help meet demand is probably as awkward as any of us can imagine, considering Apple just won another injunction forbidding the sale of Samsung's Galaxy Tab in all of Europe.

    LG will still be the major supplier for iPad 2 displays, given they can fix the quality issues. Lord knows Apple doesn't want to ask anymore favors of Samsung than they have to.

      Nice article Mr Swanson. definitely a step up from some previous ones.

      LOL I wonder if samsung is still going to provide parts used in the next iDevices. It will be interesting to see.
