Sharp talks up its IGZO display technology at CES 2013, Apple said to be a "prime candidate"

As some of you may know, IGZO promises some pretty big stuff. How about being able to easily double the resolution of a screen, while dramatically reducing its power consumption (80-90%) at the same time? Not bad, right? The technology actually has this special characteristic which allows it to continue displaying an image even after all power supply to the display has been stopped. Neat stuff!
Interestingly, Topeka analyst Brian White was also present at Sharp's media event at CES, mentioning that Apple is believed to be a "prime candidate" for IGZO. We've certainly heard that before, and if it's indeed true, that would mean an enormous boost for IGZO distribution in its early days.

I know why Apple is the "PRIME candidate", they already have a phone that bends quite nicely. It's called the iPhone 5. lol Sharp is only generating buzz for its display. BOTH Android because of its sheer market hold & Apple for their tremendous bank funds will see this display.

Companies always slightly exaggerate their tech stats in precentages etc. in their products,one or two in particular are guilty of taking that to a bit of an excessive level,sharp here clearly fall into that category,however in doing this it certainly puts them in the right spot to be bed buddies with Apple!

I am a wee bit confused right now...IGZO tech is not replacing LCD or AMOLED screen technologies, IGZO is a material from wich the TFT matrice is built from, not the screen itself, get your facts straight...untill now we had TFT made out of aSi and LTPS, the later one being much better but more expensive too, IGZO is said to reduce the cost and be even better than LTPS in regard of power consumption and resolution, and in there lays its advantage, so to recap IGZO is not a new screen tech it is new TFT matrice tech, we will still have LCD and AMOLED screens until something new is invented I hope my grammar is adequate for you all to understand me
