Apple iPad Mini to Use “G/F2″ Thin Film Touch Technology

Here we go again with some fresh reports coming from Digitimes. This time around it’s about the rumored iPad Mini. To refresh your memory, said iPad Mini is supposed to have a smaller screen display, particularly measuring 7.85-inch. Now, Digitimes is reporting that aside from the size, the screen of the iPad Mini might be using “G/F2? thin-film touch technology.
Company named Nitto is said to be supplying the key thin-film materials and Nissha Printing and TPK will be producing the touch screens. Due to the thin-film requirement, previous touch module supplier of iPad, Wintek will not be supplying this time for the iPad Mini.

What will the G/F2 touch technology bring to the iPad Mini. For one, it will bring down the cost of the making the iPad Mini. It will also make the tablet thinner than the iPad and iPad 2 since it will be having one less layer of film.
Additionally, the iPad Mini will also be more transparent and will feature better sensitivity.
Finally, Digitimes also mentioned about the iPad Mini becoming available on Q4 and that Apple will be eyeing to ship 7-10 million units of the iPad Mini this year.
