Touch panel shipments may drop to make way for next iPhone
| by Aaron Almeida |
A few weeks ago, the Internet was flooded with various reports of the next iPhone and this is usually the case before any Apple product launch. There have been rumours surrounding the panels that Apple would use for the next iPhone aka iPhone 5 - with an analyst making a graph detailing how the next iPhone would be thinner if it uses the in-cell touch panel technology that the brand is highly believed to use. At the time the report indicated that the upcoming flagship smartphone from Apple would be 2mm thinner than the current generation iPhone 4S. This feat would address the competition as a growing number of smartphones are launched with a size between 7mm to just below 8mm. The latest rumour added to the already long list of iPhone 5 news is a report by Digitimes, which states that since the brand is moving to in-cell touch panel technology for their next iPhone, the shipments of touch panels from TPK Holding and Wintek will drop by this quarter of 2012.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
