joint venture between Sony and Samsung now has a second 8th-generation
production line to its credit, as the companies announced the $1.5 billion dollar expansion
is now in operation and will be capable of producing up to 70,000 glass sheets per month for 32, 46- and 52-inch HDTV screens by the end of the year. We've seen prices at that size fall sharply since the first line was introduced two years ago
, and we can't help but think this bodes well for Black Friday bargain hunters in 2009 and beyond.
