Foxconn affiliate Chimei Innolux now also provides touchscreens for iPad production

One day after talking about the entry of Everlight Electronics as a supplier of LED components for the production of iPads 2, Bloomberg Businessweek said today that Apple already has a third supplier of touchscreens for its tablets, Chimei Innolux, an affiliate of Foxconn.

iPads 2

Chimei joins LG Display and Samsung Electronics as responsible for the manufacture of IPS panels (In-Plane Switching) for iPads, which should warm up the production of the tablet and better meet the absurd worldwide demand for the product. It also provides sensors for these screens, until then delivered only by TPK Holding and Wintek.

The first batches of screens and sensors provided by Chimei are expected to be delivered in May.
