Consumers waiting for the new iPad Mini may have to wait awhile longer. Korean News site ETNews claims Apple is pushing back the launch of the Mini 2 due to burn-in problems on the tablet's LCD panel. Citing an unnamed industry source, ETNews says that the glitch stems from the indium gallium zinc oxide technology used for the panels manufactured by Sharp. The smaller pixels required for the new Mini's Retina Display pose a challenge to the technology, thus creating production issues. Though the burn-in is not visible to the naked eye, the panels don't meet the technical standards to pass Apple's muster.
