A few days ago, Digitimes reported that Apple ordered a number of large capacitive touch screens from Sintek for potential use in an upcoming multi-touch iMac. Coupled with the above image of a multi-touch iMac from an Apple patent filing, the rumor seemed to have legs.
Or so it seemed.
Sintek Photronics spokesman Barry Wu recently denied Digitimes’ report. Then again, the denial is sourced from Digitimes, so who knows what to believe!
