Apple planning multitouch iMac?

Posted on Wednesday, November 26 2008 @ 14:34:58 CET by

TG Daily spotted a rumour that LG may be making touchscreens for an upcoming Apple iMac computer:
Apple has been quite clear about the multi-touch in desktop and notebook computers – this feature will not be available in the near term. However, contrary to the public statement, we received word that Apple may be working on a multi-touch project due for a Macworld introduction in January 2009. Supporting this information is a report that iMac display maker LG is currently taking steps to mass-produce multi-touch displays.

According to Stuff.tv, which recently visited one of LG's display factories, the company is pretty much ready ship multi-touch devices. "The screen itself looks like it's good–to–go," says the post. "LG’s done it's bit, so Apple, it's over to you."

Of course, LG is making LCDs for other manufacturers as well and sells LCD displays under its own brand. Let’s not forget that Windows 7 will be released in late 2009 and these multi-touch displays could simply be Windows 7 LCDs. And if Apple is really preparing a multi-touch iMac, it would not even represent the first foray of a major computer maker into multi-touch desktops.
