Korean Times Reporting Apple Set to Purchase 7.85" Displays From Samsung
The new iPad isn’t even out yet and rumors regarding a 7.85” model iPad are already flaring back up.
The Korean Times published claims by an unnamed Samsung source that Apple is expected to purchase $11 billion in components from Samsung by the end of 2012. This is up from the $9.7 billion outlined in the current contract between the two companies. The source claims a portion of that $11 billion is going toward 7.85” displays.
“Apple is planning to release a smaller iPad, probably with a 7.85-inch screen, and to sell more of its MacBook Air PCs using Samsung’s faster solid state drive storage,” unnamed executive-level source.
"Apple has the intent to use Samsung’s OLED technology, however, Apple doubts the output commitment for OLED screens by Samsung,” unnamed executive-level source.

Wouldn't believe any korean media reports, they tend to report unconfirmed information all the time.

While I don't blame the MMi writers, I wish people would stop fabricating the same rumors every month.

I don't blame mmi at all. The korean media are a bunch of muckrakers.

The increase is due to the new iPads higher screen cost isn't it?
I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

Rumors can be good. Speculation is ok. Doubt is your right. Many ideas stem from rumor/speculation. We get many facts from Mmi..we also get a lot of what ifs and rumors..just part of the game. You no like..you no read that simple.
