Apple in Talks with Samsung over OLED Display for iPad 3

Apple COO Tim Cook visited South Korea last week and met with Samsung according to a report.

Rumors that Apple is eventually adopting OLED displays for its product line are around since quite a while. About a year ago Apple was already said to have ordered OLED displays for the iPad 2. We all know that this did not happen.

Now a new report from the Korean Herald (Via OLED-Info) says that Apple COO and current interim CEO Tim Cook visited South Korea last week to talk OLED with Samsung for the iPad 3. According to the report Apple offered an advance for AMOLED displays.

I think we are still not even close to have 9.7-inch OLED displays available in the order of magnitude Apple would need them for an iPad 3. Additionally the cost of tablet-sized OLED displays is still to high. Right now AMOLED displays are only working for smartphones. As soon as Samsung releases an Galaxy Tab with AMOLED display we are less than a year away before Apple adopts that display. Until that happens an AMOLED iPad is a fantasy product.
