7.85-inch iPad mini rumored to use new thinner Touchscreen Technology

There is of course no confirmation that Apple will indeed release a smaller iPad this year. The rumors around a 7.85-inch iPad are though not stopping. Today Digitimes reports that Apple is supposed to use the so called G/F2 thin-film touch technology for the iPad mini. A company called Nitto is supplying the key thin-film materials, and Nissha Printing and TPK producing the touch screens.

The advantage of G/F2 is that the touchscreen is thinner and cheaper to make.

Digitimes was yesterday the subject of an in-depth analysis over at the Time's Techland. Harry McCracken did some serious fact-checking of the Digitimes Apple rumors over the years. At most times the rumors turn out to be false. Still, Digitimes is widely published and referenced. The main reason for this is that their reputation is good enough. Blogs and news outlets are eagerly seeking Apple rumors and a Digitimes rumor fits the bill any day to write a story for most outlets (including ours). It does matter if the rumor turns out to be true or false. The Apple fans want to read it.

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.
