If Sharp has been hired to manufacture 12.2-inch panels then naturally it will disturb Apple's relationship with the Japanese panel maker. It is believed that Apple is working closely with Sharp on company's upcoming device including iPhone 5S and iPad 5.

Further, the reports also disclosed that Samsung is in a hurry to produce this very tablet device. So, the production can start from next-month onwards. Sharp's IGZO display technology is rated among the most advanced in the industry. However, the specification of Samsung's 12.2-incher tablet is not out yet, but it will arrive with S Pen stylus. This device could be a part if Note series, if Samsung is planning S Pen functionality.

Earlier this year, Sharp announced that the company will be planning to manufacture Notebooks panel starting from 11.6-inches up to 15.6-inch panel. Here is an excerpt from the same.

"IGZO technology enables smaller thin-film transistors and increased light transmittance. As a result, fine text can be rendered crisply and clearly, and images can be displayed with impressive realism. For example, the 14-inch panel boasts a pixel density of 262 ppi, which represents 1.67 times the number of pixels of full high definition*3. Increased light transmittance also means lower rates of energy consumption, with IGZO technology reducing the amount of power required to drive liquid crystals during the display of still images. These factors lead to greater energy efficiency and longer battery life on notebook PCs. IGZO technology is also compatible with stylus-input touchscreen functionality."


Come 2014, Apple would announce its jumbo-sized "iPad Max". It is said to have a 12.9-inch display. Details are not known at the moment, but certainly Apple is eyeing UltraBook market for a long time. Stay tuned to GizBot.
