I wonder what would have led Wintek to announce an investment of almost $ 14 million in expanding its facilities in Taichung Huanzhong according to the DigiTimes, for the production of medium-sized touchscreens.
Monthly production of these components is expected to grow to 5.5 million units by the end of the year.
The question remains in the air: why are so many panels sensitive to touch? How does Wintek expect to sell so many components, practically doubling the current pace of 3 million a month? Does this investment have anything to do with the success of the original iPad and the imminent arrival of the second generation? To be?
