Tim Cook, Apple’s COO and acting CEO had visited South Korea last week and reports state that, he went to discuss the possibility of using Samsung’s AMOLED screens for the upcoming iPad 3.
The Apple iPad 3 as we mentioned earlier might be more interesting than the iPad 2. It seems that Apple have planned to launch the iPad 3 towards the end of 2011 and that Samsung’s AMOLED technology might be used in it.
Earlier reports suggested that the production capacity of the AMOLED units wasn’t acceptable to Apple since Samsung had a tough time supplying screens for their own phones.
The news has not yet been confirmed and as of now it is just a rumour since a Samsung Mobile Display spokesperson said that he has not heard of such discussions taking place. The rumour suggests that Apple offered Samsung an advance for the AMOLED units.
The offer comes at a time when the two companies are engaged in a legal dispute which again causes us to doubt the legibility. Lets wait and see what happens eventually.
