Touch Screen Defect Could Delay iPhone 5 Shipments
According to some iPhone supply chain makers a defect in the iPhone 5′s touch panels could delay their shipment. The Wintek-made touch panels have been reported with a “delayed bubble” that is difficult to avoid when laminating the touch panel layers. The same process was used in the iPhone 4, so the problem should be fixed quickly. Wintek accounts for 20-25% of the total production of touch panels used in iPhone 5.
NOTE: I know many of you don’t see the point in reporting on all these iPhone stories since there has been no official indication that Sprint will even get it. However, there has been substantial evidence to support that Sprint may be getting some form of iPhone. Until someone officially says otherwise we will continue to keep you informed about the iPhone, just like any other upcoming device we think might grace Sprint’s airwaves.
