Chimei Innolux: iPad IPS LCD Shipments in May

DigiTimes:

TFT-LCD panel maker Chimei Innolux (CMI) is making efforts to hike yield rates for its production of IPS (in-plane switching) panels to a level required for use in the iPad, and hopes to obtain certification from Apple and then begin shipments in May 2011, according to industry sources.

It’s interesting that CMI would start manufacturing 9.7-inch IPS TFT LCDs when it hasn’t yet received certification from Apple.
