Apple Testing New Touchscreen iMacs?

Sintek Photronics has reportedly sent samples of projected capacitive touch panels to Apple for testing in the iMac, according to a DigiTimes report.

Sintek Photronics has a good chance of becoming Apple's supplier since not many companies have the capability of producing a panel 20-inch and above. Sintek is equipped with 5.3G production lines.

Projected capacitive touch panels are typically produced by placing touch sensors over the panel, and then a cover glass over the sensors. The conventional method is not only costly and complex, but affects display brightness. The new iMac is rumored to have a good vertical and horizontal viewing angle, and its projected capacitive touch panel will adopt a one-glass solution, which integrates the touch sensor and cover glass, to reduce thickness and weight.

*thanks iclarified*

If this is true than apple should think about entering their iMacs into the pos system for small businesses.
