Apple managed to make the iPad mini extremely thin and lightweight and this was possible also because the company has used a new touch screen technology, compared to previous iPad tablets, G/F2 (DITO) thin-film type touch screen structure.

According to recent reports the Cupertino-based company might employ the same technology for its future full-sized iPad — currently employing G/G touch screen type — in order to make it thinner and lighter. Sources in the supply chain revealed that the suppliers for the next 9.7-inch iPad will mainly be the same as those for the iPad mini; Japanese firm Nitto is expected to supply thin-film materials, Nissha Printing for touch screen modules, Taiwanese TPK for device lamination, and LG Display (LGD), together with Sharp for the panels, added the sources.
