Wintek Wins Apple Media Pad Touchscreen Contract

Posted May 27, 2009

Wintek Corporation is the company that was reported to be building touch panels for Apple last March.  The Apple product that Wintek was making touch panels for was unknown although there was speculation over a netbook.

The most recent rumor over the touch panel order that was made a couple months ago is that Apple is now working on an “e-book form factor netbook product” according to SlashGear.  The touchscreen device is expected to have VoIP, Internet access, and WiFi integration.

The product is unlikely to appear on the market until 2010 because of issues in dealing with a stable version of a mobile operating system.
