We reported on Samsung's investment into Sharp last week, but it looks like Samsung could use this as a nice little wink over at their main competitor, Apple.

Trefis analysts have postulated that Samsung's investment could see Apple lose some of their power over at Sharp, who are estimated to supply one-third of Apple's display panels. Another big factor is that Apple are reportedly getting Sharp to help with their upcoming TV. Trefis believes that Samsung's investment in Sharp could be the beginning of a blossoming relationship, which could eventually push Apple against a wall.
