Earlier this week Bloomberg reported that Corning the maker of Apple's iPhone glass stated that it would probably take at least three years before companies start making flexible displays using its new Willow material. That led to speculation that Apple's iWatch would have to wait three years. While that was nice of Corning to provide us with their view of Apple's world, don't forget that LG made an announcement way back in August 2012 that they would be able to supply Apple with flexible OLED displays by the end of 2013.
LG Display's CEO Han Sang-beom clearly stated in a Korean Times report that they would have screens ready by the end of 2013. Volume production on the other hand could take until 2014 as LG's plant in Tangjeong, South Chungcheong Province, is only expected to produce some 960,000 flexible OLED sheets by the end of the year which isn't enough for Apple. While the original statement was in context with flexible displays for iPhones, the fact remains that LG has the glass that Apple needs for whatever product of their choosing.
The bottom line is that Apple's information band or iWatch-Like device doesn't have to wait for Corning as the press reporting on last week. Of course there's no promise that Apple intends to release such a new wearable computing product, but if they decided to green light the project, we at least know that they won't be hamstrung waiting for Corning.
