Sharp talks up its IGZO display technology at CES 2013, Apple said to be a "prime candidate"
It looks like Sharp is completely serious about that IGZO thing - the revolutionary screen technology that's been in the works for years. As it turns out, Sharp has spent a good deal of time at CES 2013 to talk IGZO up, carefully explaining what the benefits of the technology are, compared to today's popular screen technologies like LCD and AMOLED.

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.
