The new iPad which is about to come out is said to take after the thin and light Mini. Apple’s upcoming product par excellence will feature film-based touch panel technology.

The selfsame technical and design details that were a part of the slim and lightweight Mini will feature in the next iPad. This is being manufactured by Apple’s part providers in the Asian Continent. An iPad obviously has a screen which is the first interface between the user and the mechanism. This has many layers, one of which is sensitive to touch. The touch screen lies in between the LCD and covering glass panel. The iPad Mini is reported to sport a film-based touch interface that is sleeker and more of a featherweight contraption when compared with the more middleweight gadget. The next model of the iPad Mini will be even more of a success story than the current version. 

The film-based touch screen has its advantages which are many more than the glass variant. Especially as regards breadth and weight, this is more suitable for futuristic purposes. Apple provides the entire global audience with tablets. Even the slightest change in the components it uses may alter the suppliers’ needs. The transformation may mean better days lie ahead for PET film makers since they will be furnishing the raw materials for Apple suppliers in the future. Japan’s Nitto Denko Corporation will be one of the main sources of PET film provision. Thanks to the change in screen components this firm will double its output and earn a hefty amount in the process.
