Sharp IGZO displays find customers, to arrive in Q2 2013
Sharp’s IGZO display technology is innovative in that it reduces significantly the power hunger of screens, and it was earlier rumored to even come on the iPad mini. Truth is, LG Display (mostly) and AU Optronics are the two main suppliers for the 7.9-inch Apple tablet, but good news is that IGZO displays will be coming to devices in the first quarter of 2013 in Asia, and the second quarter of next year for Western market.

“A domestic company will probably offer products using IGZO display panels from the first quarter of the calendar year,” a senior Sharp executive said. “As for foreign brands, you will probably see such products in the second quarter.”

Earlier Sharp had struggled to find customers for its new screen technology, but now it seems those problems are largely gone.

Sharp will first start offering IGZO screens in Japan with the 4.9-inch Sharp Aquos phone and a 7-inch Aquos Pad tablet.

Once we reach power saving yet powerful SoCs, with nice powersaving 1080p screens, with battery capacities that are doubled in the same space, with fast 64gb+ storage, and awesome docks to connect to TV & PC, we wont have much more fun news to hear :( And I feel like this is all going to happen in a year or two

i hope what they meant with "domestic company" is sony. sony should be using better displays now. their mobile displays have been inferior.
