Apple Resumes Purchasing Displays From Samsung?

Apple has resumed purchasing displays from Samsung due to its ability to supply thin glass panels, according to a etnews report.

As the thin glass process was adopted to the production of touch screen panels, the related industry is expected to show stiff growth every year - there are very few Japanese or Taiwanese competitors in the thin glass market. The industry is guessing that one of the reasons Apple decided to come back to Samsung Display is because of the thin glass. Samsung Display’s thin glass vendors have made a very visible growth in the industry, because Samsung Display, unlike LG Display, relies on its vendors for most of the thin glass processes.

Apple reportedly uses thin glass in the iPhone, iPad, and recent MacBooks. Samsung uses thin glass in its Galaxy S smartphones.

If Apple has moved backed to Samsung for its LCDs, it would be notable change from their recent shift away from using Samsung as a supplier.

In the end, it's all about money. They are the two biggest players in the market. They realized now it seems if they get along they make more money. Nothing personal, just business. Enough money for everyone period.

You anti apple people are just plain morons. First of all. I guarantee, if this true, it wasn't apple that went back to them. It was Samsung begging apple to come back. Even though Samsung make billions of dollars throughout all their different divisions, without apple as a customer it would take a big chunk out of their total profits. Samsungs display division is separate from the others. And it's ran by its own VP. If you idiots would think about it before opening your mouths maybe you'd understand how their company/divisions operate. If Samsung were to raise or double their prices just for apple, Apple would go elsewhere. Like they have before. Samsung needs apple more than apple needs them. You people call apple fans idiots, suckers and brainwashed sheep? Give me a break!!! Take a look in the mirror and Use your brains. You're the ones that are getting suckered into buying their cheap crap!!! Have fun with their thrown together, overpriced junk that will never get OS updates and will be outdated in three months and replaced by their new "next big thing".
