Sharp has “nearly halted” production of 9.7-inch iPad screens, according to a report. Screen production is now at “the minimal level to keep the line running.” The report initially mentions a demand shift to Apple’s iPad mini, but later notes sources “didn’t say how much of the slowdown was due to seasonal changes in demand or consumers opting for the smaller iPad mini and were unable to characterize Apple’s overall tablet sales.” Sharp’s Miyuki Nakayama said, “We don’t disclose production levels.” A source at LG Display — Apple’s biggest supplier — said its decreased production was mostly due to typical weak post-holiday demand.  Apple did not comment.
