The growing rivalry between Apple and Samsung is helping both companies to get better and better to provide tough competition to each other. Following the same track Apple has shifted the production of its iPhone and iPad displays to Sharp, a Japanese supplier of LCD screens. Peter Misek, an analyst views this collaboration as “It’s a huge deal for Sharp because they spent significant amounts of capital to try and expand capacity and upgrade their facilities and gives Apple a partner that they can control manufacturing and secure supply at a lower price.” Sharp is already manufacturing the iPhone and iPod touch panels and will also make the LCD panels for Apple’s next generation iPhone and next iPad to be released in 2012.
Unfortunately we have no information about the screen size or resolution of the device, but it is widely anticipated to be carrying the “retina-like” pixel density to the third-generation iPad. The relation between the two companies was boiling under the lid from long time and it is also rumored that the companies would spend $1.2 billion to develop plant capacity, with most of the investment is provided by Apple.
