Apple is turning to Samsung Display to help ease supply issues with the upcoming Retina Display iPad mini, according to a Nikkei report relayed by CNET.

LG Display and Sharp are both suppliers for the new display panel; however, Sharp is said to be suffering with low yields and even LG is "not close to full production."

As a result, Apple is reportedly turning to Samsung. However, Samsung won't be able to deliver at high volumes until well into next year, says the report. The severe shortages are described as 'more than Apple bargained for.'

Apple CEO Tim Cook said "it's unclear whether we'll have enough for the quarter or not" during the company's quarterly earnings call.

It's currently rumored that the new iPad mini will go on sale November 21st.

Also people when apple and rockstar bought the patents for 4.5 billon they bought just that the bankruptcy court sold everythinglot by lot to try to get as much as they could another cocompany could have easily bought technology from Nortel and strip it down to bare bones make something else and call it their own so enough of this apple samsung crap they are both reaping the benifits of a defunct company in the future we will see Microsoft do the same with Nokia and who ever buys BlackBerry and guts it thanks guys and gals for letting me post on your forum tim a gs3 owner for now

You cannot be serious ios 7 is equal to android ics to android users obsolete os and apple would be nothing without Nortel patents so who is using whose technology all smartphone users should be thankful for Nortel's groundbreaking work

I'd say it's exactly the opposite. iDevices are nothing more than Samsung branded/Apple designed components.

Apple can't live without Samsung and that's the fact. Truth always remains and comes out often. Can't help it. Apple is just nothing without these companies especially Samsung. Hats off to Samsung for supporting apple even if they are rivals in business. That's what we call business and true sprit. HATS OFF
