Does it look like April
to you? Sure
doesn't to me, cuz I haven't started pestering people for birthday presents yet. Anyway, Samsung's
second 7G LCD production facility wasn't supposed to open till
April, but they're opening
I guess all those rumors of HDTV LCD oversupply will be coming true in the near future, because 4 screens per
substrate, 45,000 substrates per month.....is a whole lot.
I wonder if you drive by the plant, they have
those signs like Krispy Kreme announcing fresh....LCD's?
Edit: Looks like LG
couldn't wait to get the party started either, as this later
mentions they are also
kicking off production at their own seventh generation production
facility, as we reported earlier
. Geez man, before long
everybody is going to have one, why buy an LCD when you can just get a whole LCD plant?
: "LG.Philips LCD will be the only panel maker who operates both 6th and 7th generation lines,
which will strengthen its position as a leader in the LCD TV market.
Based on its system of fab dedication,
LG.Philips LCD has developed a portfolio of facilities that concentrate on specific product categories. The 6th
generation line in Gumi focuses on 32- and 37-inch TV panels while the 7th generation line in Paju will focus on 42-
and 47-inch TV panels. This gives LG.Philips LCD an efficient production base, and will allow it to continue its
leading role in the global standardization of LCD TV sizes
