Rumor: Apple Tablet Will Use 10-inch Touch Panels Supplied by Innolux

Apple-Tablet-10-inch-screen Yet another day, yet another Apple related rumor. Digitimes is reporting that, Apple Tablet will utilize 10 inch touch panels supplied by Innolux – the panel making subsidiary of the Foxconn Group.

This new information contradicts previous reports that Apple Tablet will be available in a 7 inch form factor. It is unlikely that Apple will manufacture two different models, since they have traditionally preferred to introduce new devices with a single model. Additional models are introduced only after the device becomes popular.

According to reports, Apple was forced to delay the launch of Apple Tablet as it wanted to strengthen the glass of the 10-inch panel for the device. Foxconn’s optical glass processing subsidiary G-Tech Optoelectronics will be helping by providing a glass-strengthening solution.

Digitimes expects the Apple Tablet to be announced in January. However, it won’t go on sale till March or April.
