Report: Apple netbook touchscreen supplier named
Taiwanese electronics company Wintek reported to the Chinese Language financial newspaper Commercial Times that it is working with Apple to develop new products that utilize the company's touch panels.
The paper speculated that one such product will be a netbook made by Quanta Computer, which has already manufactured notebooks for Apple, although Wintek said the panels will begin shipping in the second half of the year. Wintek is the company which supplies touchscreens for the iPod Touch, and news of the product was revealed in a similar fashion, several months before the product's debut.
Though a mixed morning thus far on the stock market, Wintek's shares are currently climbing in value, already 3.3% higher than their opening price.
