Internal LCD Connector?

I was wondering if anyone knew what connector the iPad Mini uses to connect the flex cable to the board inside the housing? Are we talking LVDS or something else?

I'm hoping to buy an iPad mini screen ( http://compare.ebay.com.au/like/1409...PriceItemTypes ), and if it is an LVDS connection, using a HDMI to LVDS converter for a project I am working on.

Take a look at the ifixit tear down and see if you can identify the connector. I doubt apple makes this type of info public so you may have a difficult time getting this information.

I've already had a look but I can't tell. I've read somewhere that the iPad 2 at least uses LVDS, but I don't know if this has carried through or not.
