“Apple is set to launch new OLED notebooks and flat panel monitors along with a new OLED iPhone claim sources at LG in Korea,” David Richards reports for Smarthouse.
“It’s also believed that a new iPhone and iPod touch due later this year will include an OLED screen made by LG who last year scored a multibillion dollar deal to manufacture display screens for Apple,” Richards reports.
“One source that SmartHouse has spoken to claims that Apple already have working prototype of a new Netbook which will be manufactured in Taiwan with the OLED screen supplied by LG,” Richards reports.
MacDailyNews Take: We wish people would stop using the word “netbook” in these reports. It’s needlessly confusing and, we believe, an very incorrect description of what we hear (and can’t yet confirm) that Apple’s working on.
Richards continues, “Sources in Taiwan told ChannelNews last month that Apple were looking at an OLED based notebook that will also incorporate new touch screen technology. Now sources in Korea are saying that this information is correct and that one area where LG has been testing OLED panels is in the area of touch sensitivity and ‘leave behind finger marks.'”
MacDailyNews Take: See what we mean? That’s no “netbook.”
Richards continues, “LG believe that by adding a layer in the manufacturing process that they can eliminate ‘finger marking.’ Smarthouse was also told that Apple is looking at a wafer thin OLED screen made by LG that will link with a wireless content device similar to the current Apple TV box.”
