Your next Sony LCD TV may actually be a Sharp

2 03 2008

If you’ll recall, Samsung announced plans last November to expand an 8G LCD plant sans Sony — now, Reuters is reporting that Sony is aiming to start procuring LCD TV panels from Sharp, possibly within the next business year. Apparently, the deal with Sharp would allow it to “secure enough panels to meet fast-growing LCD TV demand without heavy capital investments,” and considering that Sharp is already planning to construct the world’s largest LCD factory by 2010, we’d say this works out quite nicely for it, too. Needless to say, the global demand for all things LCD seems to be going nowhere but up, but here’s to hoping those prices continue to head in the opposite direction for the consumers’ sake.
