Innolux gets news Apple touch panel order

According to a Digitimes report yesterday, Taiwanese display manufacturer Innolux has secured a secret order for touch panels from Apple, with shipments slated to begin “soon.” Arching far back on its heels, thumbing its suspenders and whistling, “No comment!” says Innolux.

There’s a lot of possibilities here, some more obvious and less exciting than others. Innolux currently supplies the touch panel for the iPhone, so this could just be a standard refill order as Apple confidently predicts the 3G iPhone to be a smash. But since size isn’t mentioned in the Digitimes piece, one can dare to dream… a MacBook Pro successor with a swivling tablet screen? A touch panel iMac, a la the HP Touchsmart?

    Judging from all the fingerprints my kids leave on the screen of our iMac, I’d say a touchscreen iMac would be a big hit.
