Sharp boasts of high-end LCD for small form factor devices
LCD specialist not conceding small device market to widely prognosticated OLED future
Just as the LCD quickly replaced bulky and heavy picture tubes in portable electronics, for years analysts and other trend-watchers have been projecting that organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology would make quick work of LCDs. In theory, volume production of OLED could be considerably cheaper than LCD and enable ultra-low power and even flexible screens to become a part of the mainstream.
LCD manufacturers naturally have a different opinion, as evidenced by 's recent announcement that it is on the verge of shipping samples of a new high-performance LCD panel. The company claims to have designed a two-inch LCD with three times the response time of its normal panel technology, 240x320 resolution, and a contrast ratio of 2000:1. The first panels are expected to appear in high-end mobile phones which double as portable televisions in the Japanese market.
