According to DigiTimes, Sintek Photronics has sent samples of projected capacitive touch panels to Apple for a touchscreen iMac.
Citing industry sources, DigiTimes claims that Sintek Photronics has a “good chance” of becoming a supplier for a touchscreen iMac. The Taiwanese publication describes the basic composition of such touchscreen panels:
The new iMac is rumored to have a good vertical and horizontal viewing angle, and its projected capacitive touch panel will adopt a one-glass solution, which integrates the touch sensor and cover glass, to reduce thickness and weight.
LOOPRumors received information back in June that Apple was planning to develop a hybrid OS, equipped with both Mac OS X and a touch interface for iOS, into its next iMac.
