    Browsing the net today and I came upon this interesting piece. I have quoted the main facts:

    Seems we will be getting two different companies making screens for the iPad. Dunno whether it is a good thing or a bad thing. Or maybe they already started Gen 2

    But 13 million screens... thats a bit too much. I highly doubt the iPad will reach that in a year. 6-7 million sounds more likely. Opinion?

    Different companies making the same screens for Apple is good, it means competiteve pricing...
    My Dell laptop hase the posiblity of 4 different screen companies, I just pick the cheapest one for replacements...

    They went to other manufacturers because of the problems with Wintek

    I agree that the more that make it the better pricing we will get. Maybe there will be other devices also using the LCD's they are getting.

    Different companies making screens for the iPad will cut down on price (as pointed out by others)...

    I predict we'll see a price cut for the 2nd generation.

    I think I'll wait until then (but then again, maybe not).

    The question is would the price cut be first gen? second gen? or both? Personally with the competition Apple is facing, I think it will be both
