    Sharp's screens on their TVs made for the USA market
    are produced on the Japanese mainland and then sent to other countries for assembly.

    So will the screens for the new iPhone be produced
    on the actual Japanese mainland?

    Sad to ask but no radiation ( cesium ) concerns?

    Do you somehow think all of Japan is awash in radiation ?

    Not all.
    As a parent, I won't be risking it though,
    even if some experts tell me there is zero risk.

    You do know there are detectors that can measure radiation - even small amounts ? It will not happen. Paranoid much OP ?

    Not all radiation is bad.

    And besides, do you eat bananas?

    ...but you let them use a cell phone that WORKS by radiation? :eek:


    Irrational fear: Just think what would happen if they renamed microwave oven a radiation oven?:D

    A coal power plant emits more radiation than a nuclear plant. Most of the world is still powered by coal. That's your fun fact for the day, OP.

    I have no words... seriously. I...

    Yeah.

    There's a lot more radiation around you than you realize.

    I guess OP lives in a wooden house in the middle of a forest, far away from civilization.

    Probably never used a microwave, a cell phone or a compute- never mind.

    :confused: Its a rough time for them already, and you have to rub it in by asking whether there is caesium in the alleged Sharp iPhone displays which to me is a indirectly showing ignorance of the situation.

    And no. It will baffle me how caesium manages to get into the production of LCD displays.'

    Certainly

    Certainly... As after Chernobyl anything in the range of about 80km gets contaminated (including raw materials stored outside) and will finish anywhere in the value
    chain - including screens... border checks are useless as there are no efficient instruments for detection for the mass market today.

    have a look at this

    and similar....

    I'd never buy anything made in japan or by Sharp currently (remember that the real situation of chernobyl has only been known about 4-5 years later, in Japan I guess it will be even later).

    Your precious kids aren't going to die from holding an iPhone. Unless you want them to, but that's a different story.
