AU Optronics unlikely to land orders for new iPad mini, DigiTimes reports

AU Optronics (AUO) is unlikely to land orders for the next-generation iPad mini due to Apple's (AAPL) demand of Retina-lass panels based on oxide TFT technology, reports DigiTimes. According to Taiwan-based supply chain makers, AU Optronics has been struggling along the way to reach high production yields and is now incapable of producing panels with oxide TFT technology for the time being.
