Apple is moving on from its severed relationship with Samsung
Apple has brought a new iPad mini supplier onboard, knocking other dominant touch panel makers like Samsung down a peg.
Apple has made Innolux Corp., a Taiwanese LCD panel maker, one of its iPad mini touch panel suppliers. LG and AU Optronics Corp. are the other two major iPad mini suppliers of touch panels.
Innolux is currently in the midst of obtaining a certificate for product qualification from Apple. Innolux plans to ship its first batch of touch panels using its touch-on-display tech by the end of 2013.
used to be a major LCD panel supplier
for Apple's iPhones and iPads, but in October 2012, Samsung Display officially severed its contract with the iDevice maker. Samsung cited cost as the main issue, since Apple has started using Samsung competitors with better prices for displays recently. Hence, Apple was expecting bigger discounts from Samsung.

Color accuracy is certainly not "spot on" and being at the very bottom of the charts in display brightness isn't exactly endearing either.
As they say (you can look through if you want), it's a fine display in a vacuum. So is every other display in a 200$+ tablet. But the competition is as competitive, if not better.
