Samsung's Investment Bank says Apple iPad mini to launch with 7 inch screen in Q3

The document goes on to add that Samsung needs to improve the resolution on its flexible panel as well as be able to deliver a large quantity for Apple to use them for their next Apple iPad. The upcoming Apple iPad 3 is expected to come with a IPS Retina display. SMD admits that at present, it can "only" produce 54 million AMOLED displays. Pricing is also an issue as the current 3.5 inch LCD display on the Apple iPhone 4 is said to cost $38.50 each while the 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen on the Samsung Galaxy S II runs $50-$55 each. Turning to tablets, for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7, the 7.7 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen is $150-$170 each while a AMOLED display measuring 9.7 inches for an Apple iPad would cost $240-$260.

Ifans have been rambling fanatic rubbish against samsungs amoled screens for ages so this news is funny to say the least. Unconfirmed facts state that Samsung has rigged the ipad amoled screen to self destruct when pressed against an Ifans face thus riddingthe world of their stupidity when they hug their ipad before going to sleep at night.

am just know that samsung gets paid to make those million and 1 iphones and ipads. You really think they not going to accept apples money. If you look at the market samsung and apple are dominating the market. The more apple sells iphones (ipads) the more money samsung is getting. Think they really care. They are not sharing anything they are making MONEY!!

it's nothing new. Samsung is a parts manufacturer/supplier as well as device manufacturer. They've been supplying apple with numerous parts for many years now (screen, memory, nand, soc, etc) I wonder if all the lawsuits were filed to leverage the negotiation on the newer parts
