And this may be good news to the traditional Value Added Distributor, particularly those who have invested in flat panel display integration. Right now there are not too many distributors in the channel equipped to handle the segment, but that doesn't mean they can't step up to the plate. There is precedent for it going back several years.

This is going to be interesting to see how the other major manufacturers handle this supply issue. Apple seems to have a grasp on things by investing and securing panels to make sure there are no delays. Eventually Apple will have to come up with alternatives if overall supplies run short. I too eventually see the panel market becoming fabless. With the major investments needed and issues with supply and demand, it only makes sense that Apple and other companies go fabless.
