LCDs and Plasmas are nice today, but something better could be just around the corner: OLED. Sony is hoping to bring OLED displays into the mainstream market sooner rather than later and by investing $204 million into larger panels; these are great first steps. Hopefully we’ll be seeing screens larger than 11 inches in production.
I’m personally excited for this technology and to see any company invest money into its development is always a plus.
In other news, Sony is selling off their Cell chip production facilities to Toshiba. Toshiba will be taking over the Cell processor and RSX chip manufacturing for both the PlayStation 3 and other products which include Toshiba’s.
