Has nothing to do with selling screens to Apple at all, they sell screens for many others too.
Samsung is or may be more important to Apple. Samsung is the world leader.
Sharp is now forbidden from competing with apple since they are now a major supplier of apple.

I re member my first Continuous Grain Silicon displan my Sharp GX30 and still got it..Loved them days..
i love my 104sh sharp aquos phone best phone for me still kickin every single high end phone of its batch :D one major con of my phone is no freakin flash
only for sale in Japan?! either those Sharp executives don't have sharp minds or they're simply born w/ their self-confidence left in their mothers' wombs.
I like Sharps 7 inch tablet/phone SHT21 (yes, unfortunate naming) because it has the exact right size to slip into a suit jacket inner pocket, has a great frugal IGZO screen and Apt-X. Only thing missing is to have it available in Europe.
