Apple’s forthcoming 7.85-inch iPad to use ‘G/F2′ thin-film touch tech, say sources

“Apple plans to use ‘G/F2′ thin-film touch technology for its 7.85-inch iPad, which is predicted to be out by the fourth quarter of this year, according to industry sources,” Siu Han and Alex Wolfgram report for DigiTimes.
“The smaller version of Apple’s new iPad, rumored to be called iPad Mini, is said to feature the G/F2 technology, with Nitto supplying the key thin-film materials, and Nissha Printing and TPK producing the touch screens, the sources said,” Han and Wolfgram report. “Using the G/F2 design will help reduce costs and will also make the iPad Mini thinner than previous iPad models since it will have one less layer of film than the G/F/F (glass/film/film) structure, according to sources.”

Han and Wolfgram report, “The sources added that 7-10 million units of the iPad Mini may be shipped this year.”
