Apple is using its big cash pile to secure components for its devices. This is nothing new. Digitimes reports today that their sources at upstream component makers say that Apple secured close to 60% of the global touch panel supply. The report is not specific on which sizes of panels this includes, but only mentions the iPad and not the iPhone.

So Apple already made sure that no other Tablet will even get close to the iPad market share in 2011. Samsung, LG, Sony, Acer and others have to share the remaining 40% of the panels for their Tablets. Smaller Tablet makers will have according to Digitimes are very hard time to get panels this year.

The new iPad 2 is supposed to be already in production and is expected to go on sale in April.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
