has to take care of Planet Earth's insatiable appetite
for LCD, right? Samsung is once again
looking to expand
its LCD manufacturing operations in China, this time by investing around $500 million to erect a new facility for cranking out the seemingly successful 82-inch panel
(among others). Reportedly, the plant will eventually be used to pump out 40-, 46-, 57-, 70- and 82-inch LCD panels in order to "satisfy the robust market requirement
," but there's no word given on how soon product will start to ship from its doors.
