I saw that one too, but I can't find any place that actually sells it. It might also be an issue that its BGA. (i.e. you'd need special equipment to solder it)
seems to have it listed, but not in stock or priced(a get-a-quote-for-price note...) Albeit I'm USA so I was poking through their USA site.
also lists it, and even gives a price of a smidge over 5$ USD. Though they don't note having it in stock.
(This is all for the TC358765XBG, not the lesser TC358764XBG. Which is probably cheaper.)
There are some tricks for handling BGA in a less-than-professional setup. Its pretty much just reflow following a set thermal curve--and anyone who has followed hack-a-day for long enough should know some hardware-hacker methods for said ^.^' Though how sensitive a specific module is and how fine its BGA pitch is does effect how easy it is.
... unfortunately the TC358765XBG and TC358764XBG look to be *extreamly* fine pitch...
^.^ Oh well. One step forward, one step back. Progress but in an odd tangent.
On an odd tangent, anyone have any idea what interface the Iphone 4's screen uses? The LCD's themselves are rather cheap. But unlike the 3gs no-one I can find has figured out it's interface(or put much effort into it)...
