Sharp starts producing IGZO panels for smartphones and tablets
designers looking to increase the resolution on a product's screen, and those looking to build a slim device. The material used in producing these screens allows for the use of smaller TFTs and more illumination for each pixel which reduces the need for a powerful backlight. Had the IGZO panels been available in time to use on the new iPad, the third iteration of Apple's tablet might not have needed the bigger battery and thicker footprint necessary to include extra LED backlighting. The latter is required to keep the unit's 2048x1536 resolution Retina display bright. The IGZO panels were unable to be used for the most recent iPad model because the panels failed Apple's approval process.

Geez, go and google and read the news. Samsung arent the only one, yes. But right now they are really the only one who deliver retina display to new ipad. Since Sharp and LG didnt got through the quality check.

LG and sharp can not fulfill Apple's demand and it's part of Apple's quality requirement. And what the embarrased thing is samsung produces LCD with LG technology. That's proved samsung's LCD technology doesn't go through Apple Quality Check.

samsung doesn't have 2560x1600 amoled display, they have 11,3 inch 2560x1600 display and it is PenTile LCD but on screen that large it doesnt make big of a diference because you are watching it from far away and iPad is using 2056x1536 display

2560*1600 resolution for a 10.1 inch display takes the pixel density to a whopping 299 ppi, thats truly awesome... .. nothing better than this we need as humans can see upto 300 ppi through naked eyes(but upto some distance)
