“Apple has just ushered in the era of the super high-resolution computer display,” says James Kendrick, predicting rivals will be forced to match the new iPad’s much-praised (I, II) display. Both LCD panel makers such as AUO and LPL, and graphics chip vendors such NVDA and AMD, would benefit if high-res displays proliferate. Meanwhile, Gene Munster estimates 54% of the people waiting in line at Apple’s flagship Manhattan store were first-time iPad buyers. (more) Post your comment!

Apple, Big Techs Will Keep Deal Powder Dry

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Apple’s disdain for big M&A deals despite a growing cash war chest is not just holdover philosophy from Steve Jobs.

Apple and many of the largest U.S. tech companies will back off from U.S. acquisitions for one simple reason: The taxman.

Although a recent report by Moody’s shows that the overall pile of U.S. corporate cash grew 3% to $1.24 trillion in 2011, deal makers giddy on the prospect that cash rich tech companies like Apple, Microsoft, Cisco, and Google will go on a U.S. shopping spree may be disappointed, says Richard Lane, senior vice president at Moody’s.

Developers have mixed feelings about the high-res display expected to accompany the iPad 3. Graphics-intensive iPad 3 apps will require much more processing power and video memory than comparable iPad 2 apps, and could also be much larger. But while developers aren’t thrilled, the extra demands placed by the display could benefit mobile processor vendors such as QCOM, NVDA, and TXN, should rival tablet makers follow suit.

Texas Instruments Chips Away at Competition

Category : Stocks

The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet’s guest contributor program, which is separate from the company’s news coverage.

NEW YORK (Trefis) — Texas Instruments has released a marketing video comparing an Android tablet running one of its OMAP 5 SoCs (probably an OMAP5430) with its two ARM Cortex A15 cores against Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core with four ARM Cortex A9 processors and additional power-efficient companion core.

The video, which came out in anticipation of the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona that began on Monday, illustrates a benchmark test that compares Webpage loading speeds between the tablets. According to the results, the TI OMAP5 tablet finishes its benchmark in 95 seconds whereas the Tegra 3 tablet finishes in almost double the time.
