New Sharp LCD To Focus On The iPhone?

iPhone rumors seem to be going around every day and after rumors surfaced that Toshiba was building a plant to supply LCD displays to Apple, whispers are that Sharp is spending about $1.2 billion on an LCD factory that will also primarily serve Apple. If the rumors are true, Sharp’s factory would focus on small and mid-size LCDs and also primarily on serving the iPhone. The rumor also claims that Apple would take on most of the cost of establishing the factory and construction is set to begin next year in the Mie Prefecture and go into full production by the second half of 2012. Sharp isn’t any stranger to supplying Apple with displays as the company has previously supplied LCD displays for the iPod touch. Will all these LCD display factory rumors turn out to be true? If it means that we won’t have to wait in long queues for the iPhone, you can bet that folks will be happy to read this.
