iPhone 5 and iPad 3 Displays Made by Hitachi, Sony

Citing an unnamed Asian source, Japanese blog Makotakara claims Hitachi Displays, Ltd. and Sony Mobile Display Corporation have started to ship 4-inch LCD panels for the iPhone 5, and also LCD panels for iPad 3.

The Japanese blog notes that the two companies will merge their businesses with Toshiba Mobile Display Co., Ltd., to become "Japan Display" in Spring 2012.

Apple, however, also has Sharp aboard for iPad 3 screen production. A Wall Street Journal report recently got picked up by the Apple blogosphere as it added further confirmation that Apple had tapped Sharp to make the screens used in its next-generation iPads.

The Cupertino, California-based Apple is reportedly looking to diversify component suppliers for its entire product line. The reasons are uncertain, but we can all agree it’s best to have more than one supplier for the key parts in your products.
