    According to multiple reports from the industry, Apple is said to have picked Taiwan-based touch panel maker TPK to build flexible AMOLED panels for the upcoming iWatch. Besides the flexible AMOLED panels, the iWatch is expected to have a 3D protective glass, which means the cover glass will have a curved aspect.

    The mass production of the iWatch is expected to kickstart in the second half of this year and Apple is reportedly aiming to release the iWatch by the end of 2014, as well. TPK has partnered with Apple before when it supplied the touch panels for the first iPad and also produced around 80 percent of the touchscreens for the iPhone 4s.

    TPK is also said to have entered into a deal with Japan-based Nissha Printing in order to develop the silver nanowire technology that could be used in the iWatch. This would allow for the glass to be transparent while adapting to the curved surface. Tom Sun, TPK’s president, said that the production of the silver nanowire displays is now at the capacity of two million units per month.

    I look forward to seeing this being released.

    Can't say I would buy one as I don't wear a watch......but still will be interesting to see how it works and how it is integrated.
