TG Daily reports that Apple has scooped up all available 10-inch LCD and OLED screens in preparation for the launch of its rumored tablet, which may hit store shelves as soon as the end of April.
Talking to a designer from CES, TG Daily was told:
We were designing a product for a customer and we needed 10 inch screens, but we’ve been trying for months and can’t get one from any of the Asian suppliers. We were told that Apple pre-ordered them all. All 10 inch LCDs, and all 10 inch OLEDs too, it’s for the Apple tablet.
Obviously, the most intriguing aspect of this report is that Apple is snatching up both LCD and OLED screens, which seems to suggest that Apple might release 2 versions of a tablet. Most of the noise surrounding the tablet has pointed to an LCD screen only, though a report from this past November did mention Apple was working on a tablet with an OLED screen as well.
