The iPad LCD screen panel produced by LG is lagging behind on product. Another way to look at it is Apple is ahead of expected sales and caught LG by surprise. Regardless, this good and bad scenario for Apple could delay the iPad’s release in international markets.
CEO Kwon Young-soo said that LG Display is running at full capacity, “We are considering increasing production lines for Ipad products but overall supply is likely to remain tight until early next year.”
LG and Samsung are the big producers of the LCD panel market and they supply iPhone screens as well. It is predicted that iPad sales will reach 13 million units by the end of the year.
The iPad screen is very impressive. The blacks are very black and the whites are very white. The color range is allows images to jump off the screen. Even in the sunlight the images hold up well but there is of course some loss in picture. One big complaint is how messy the glass can get, as owners don’t realize that the food they eat is incredibly greasy. Additionally, the screen does break but if you ever need an iPad repair we can fix it for you.
