German Balda AG announces that it has won a large contract to deliver touch sensors for a mobile phone manufacturer.

The contract requires delivering 6 to 8 million touch sensors per year.
Balda did not disclose the customer. In June Balda made headlines as Apple was said to have ordered touch screens for the iPhone from Balda. Balda has a manufacturing facility in Xiamen, China that is producing the touch sensors.

Even if it is not clear who the customer is, the Balda stock jumped almost 20% today at the German stock market.
Because we are talking such large numbers, the customer could be Nokia. Nokia is behind on delivering a touch-screen phone. The statement explicitly says mobile phone maker, which could also mean Apple.
The only thing that's for sure is that in 2008 there will be many more touch screen phones hitting the market.
