Princess Apple treats her slave, Sharp well to show people how generous she is but she will never free that poor thing.. never..

Besides Sharp can do whatever they want to.
Xiao Xiao, 15 Jul 2014Isn't Apple focusing on high-end device? Why they bother about low end LCD?Whatever it is apple does not want to see sharp to sell it to samsung. It's just like a girl from a rich family don't want to see her poor friend wearing a new dress even if it's cheap.
Xiao Xiao, 15 Jul 2014Wow, Apple is playing dirty game!
This is really bad for industry-unfair competition.
What I don't understand is that Samsung manufactures the vast majority of the chips that go into Apples iPhones
Apple have sued Samsung twice and wound up paying millions, despite this Apple appears to have a good relationship on this front
If it were me I would have ended the contract with Apple
There come a point when Samsung should just walk away.
This propping up of Apple by Samsung has gone on too long
No one would blame Samsung if it did this, what I can't is why it hasn't
Apple afraid Sharp cannot supply both them and Samsung same time..
That seems to be a greed deal by Apple. SHARP must cater Apple and Samsung at the same time. So others company too.
popye, 14 Jul 2014Apple can easily buy Sharp and Samsung if it wants. Samsung empire is too big, including Electronics, Trade and Services, Financial Services, and Machinery and Chemicals. They can't afford it. perhaps the other way around.

Apple's the one who owns the equipment. The power is in their hands to make the demands.
Is what they're doing cheap and nasty?
I guess so. Not unlike any other company, though.
Isn't this unfair practice by Apple punishable by law? Intel was just recently fined Billions because it gave discounts to Dell in a condition that Dell doesn't make AMD models.
FreezeGame, 15 Jul 2014Apple is very intimidated by Samsung. I've never seen a company so afraid of competition. FGapple knows if they keep feeding samsung, they are going to lose for sure. so they contract with a cheap and small company. however samsungs revenue is probably 10 times more than apple as due to more different divisions within samsung. so long story short. APPLE IS SCREWED EITHER WAY

lte-a, 15 Jul 2014For small and low-end phones that have LCD display.Isn't Apple focusing on high-end device?
Why they bother about low end LCD?
in my personal opinion
this deal is worth it only if they could secure this deal for a long time else it will be meaning less for Sharp killing its other resource.

Isn't Samsung making its own screen. Why care for someone else. Amoled is a great screen.
