Leave not on the table that they may simply wish to guarantee a good supply of a far superior product to a wanting market. *shruggs*

Also known as the controlling customer concept, this strategy has been used throughout modern history. It is often used as a means for an organization to become a mid-level supplier. In this instance, however, it is a business tactic aimed at showing investors the robust confidence apple has in it's future and forthcoming success while securing their position of dominance in this area of technology.

Barney the Dinosaur could have bought %60 of the displays. If anything this is better for me as a consumer of Apple products.

To Apple figure$ they won't make much of a ripple on the enormous mass-marketshare iOS is going to gain with this tactic.
And as mentioned in other posts, this is most surely good for the entire market, from the component producers, to technological innovations, and ultimately for the consumers.

have to agree with a lot of the responses. quite a smart business move on apple's end. i'm sure had the other companies had the opportunity they would've done the same thing. i just hope the competition steps up and creates innovative new products to compete with apples' products, this will be better for the consumers!

I don't think Samasung has to worry, they have a pretty large stake in Idevices already. Considering they provide quite the few integrated circuits to apple, that means every Idevice sold is more money in samasungs pockets as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Samsung make "screens" I.e. LCD and led not the actual glass touch panel? I've always seen these parts sold separately so I am under the impression that they aren't the same component.
If that is the case then samsung would definitely have to be worried about this shortage soon to come.

what a lousy strategy for dealing with competition. in the end, its the users, the consumers who suffer.
I hate apple and I do not plan on buying any more of their products after the contract expires on my iphone 4's.
Ive already decided on getting the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 and Im so glad that the ipad 2 is already D.O.A !!

It becomes monopolizing to a certain extent. If it continues for the next few years then *maybe* it might become monopolizing. But theres too many conditions to tell if its REALLY monopolizing.
One side can say "It's monopolizing because it takes 60% of the touchscreen production to feed apple's need for touchscreens, which leaves little for other companies to order forcing them to delay production".
The other side can say "Its not monopolizing because its not apples fault that their products are more popular than other companies which requires them to make more products".
You cant really tell, its personal opinion. Mine? as i said above, its monopolizing to a certain extent.No confundas mi personalidad con mi actitud. Mi personalidad es quien soy yo, mi actitud depende de quien seas tú.
