    The Korea Herald is reporting that Samsung may be asked by Apple to supply liquid-crystal display panels for the iPad 2. According to the paper’s sources, Samsung is currently in negotiations with Apple to supply its LCD screens. The paper goes on to say that Apple is also rumoured to be interested in using Samsung’s Super Plane to Line Switching (PLS) displays, which are designed to deliver more and improved viewing angles. Super PLS displays were first unveiled by Samsung in November last year, with their target market stated as being smartphones and tablet PCs.

    When asked about the matter, spokesmen from both Apple and Samsung refused to comment.

    Look at you making me all excited from the title. You went and made me think that the screens were going to be Super AMOLED Plus there for a second.
