Apple iPad

The manufacturing company Sharp, who supply all of the iPhone screen panels have been confirmed as the supplier for the screens on the next iPad, according to the WSJ. In addition to this, Apple have made a deal with Sharp to open a new manufacturing plant in Japan, presumably where the next generation iPad will be manufactured as opposed to the current country, China.

Another report from AllThingsD states that Apple and Sharp have been working together to create a new thinner, high resolution display exclusive to the next generation iPad. Also included on this report was that Sharp are working with Apple to design and manufacture a larger, more television like screen, could this be a sign of the rumored physical Apple TV?
