We have received from reliable sources that Apple’s manufacturing and supply chain report that Apple is now working on a new device to introduce next year. This new device includes a curved glass, specifically touchscreens. This device is planned to be introduced early 2012.
Digitimes was quoted saying:
“…Apple reportedly also has bought glass polishing equipment for its suppliers in preparation for the production of devices fitted with curved cover glass. Lens Technology, Fuji Crystal, G-Tech are said to be major cover glass suppliers of Apple. While Lens and Fuji focus on iPhones, G-Tech supplies mainly for iPad.”
There are claims that not only Apple is intending to produce such devices with curved screens but also others too. These are atempts to creat a competitive edge for Apple, and as we say, a little competition never hurt anyone. It would be an inteseting battle to see if Apple will dominate the company as it has done so for the iPhone and iPad, or will its competitors be stronger.
For now these are only rumors that we have heard, we will be anticipating in the next few weeks to see whether they are true or not.
