Production of iPad 3 QXGA Retina Display Has Started?

Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch, says production of a QXGA 2048x1536 Retina Display for the iPad 3 has started, reports CNET.

"It's happening--QXGA, 2048x1536. Panel production has started [for the next-generation iPad]. There's three suppliers," said Shim.

As reported by DigiTimes, Shim says the three suppliers are Samsung, Sharp, and LGD.

"I would imagine there would be concerns about [adequate] supply given the resolution of the display but you've got three different suppliers at this point. They should have enough to launch the product," Shim said.

"It takes a couple of weeks for the production to go to the ODMs (the manufacturers). Then the manufacturer puts them in the housing. Then, that goes off to shipment. We could start seeing finished devices produced in December. And then being ready to be shipped in January. With volumes gearing up in February and March."

DigiTimes says Samsung, LG, and Sharp already shipped one million iPad 3 Retina display panels to Apple last month and will ramp up to two million units in November.

2048x1536 is NOT retina display. Not close to the 300PPI threshold.
