Apple has chosen LG, Samsung, and Sharp to supply LCD panels for the upcoming iPad 3, reports DigiTimes. Also, Radiant Opto-Electronics has become the major supplier of backlight units for the panels, says the site.

Apple has chosen LG Display (LGD), Samsung Electronics and Sharp to supply LCD panels for the iPad 3, with LGD remaining the biggest panel supplier for the US vendor's tablet PCs, the sources said.

Radiant accounts for over half of the BLUs LGD needs for its iPad 3 panels, while Samsung sources BLUs from the Taiwan maker for all its iPad 3 panels, the sources said. Sharp also uses BLUs from Radiant for iPad 3 panels, as well as from a Japan-based BLU supplier, the sources added.


If Sharp is able to provide stable quantities of quality panels it could overtake Samsung as the number panel supplier.
