New OLED iPads To Target eReader Market?

There are a bunch of rumors on the Net about Apple having ordered new OLED screen for two new iPad models to be released in this year's fourth quarter. The new 5.6 and 7-inch screens would seem to directly target the Kindle, Nook, Kobo and other dedicated ereaders. Apple considered OLED technology for the new iPhone 4 but did not go that route. According to Digitimes web site though Apple has already pre-ordered these OLED screens. I wonder if Apple can pull this one off?

There's a video of some new, flexible OLED screens posted over on http://www.joyofipad.com as well as more information. I tried to post the video here in this message too but darned if I can figure out how to do that!

Anyway, it looks like Steve Jobs is still trying to take an even bigger bite from the marketplace. Think he'll choke??

Thanks, Harry! I did a search but I somehow missed that thread! I will move this there and if a moderator could delete this thread, that'd be cool with me.

No need for that. If you missed the news thread, then other people probably did too, and having a pointer to it is always useful.
