Digitimes reports that Apple has secured 60% of the “global touch panel capacity,” causing touch screen shortages for the rest of the industry. Apple’s big investment into displays comes on the heals of Apple’s 40 million iPads in 2011 goal. This also comes during Apple’s development of the next generation iPhones and new tablets from many other players in the industry.

These shortages caused by Apple are surely not making other tablet makers like Motorola and Research in Motion happy. These touch panels should also be featured in the upcoming iPad 2 in the next few weeks and even the rumored iPad 3 during Fall of this year.
