Rumour: Apple Tablet Delayed For OLED Upgrade

That crazy DigiTimes — purveyors of always-failed-Apple rumours — now says that its manufacturer "sources" believe that there will be two Apple tablet models: a 9.7-incher with OLED screen made by LG, and the 10.6-inch version everyone has heard about.

DigiTimes says that the 9.7-inch OLED panels are priced at about $US500 today, and the screen would account for about 30 per cent of the device's $US1500 to $US1700 cost when it arrives in the second quarter of next year. OLED prices are expected to fall over the next couple of years, though. As for the 10.6-incher, that's still said to be in the $US800 to $US1000 ballpark.

No word yet from them on the rumoured matter synthesiser and teleporter module, but give it a couple more months, and they will spill it all out. [DigiTimes]
