Where do you get this info? According to this article they are not listed with Samsung - I believe they are using mostly Philips - LPL and AUO.
According to DisplaySearch, the following are the top seven LCD TV module makers and a list of their top five customers.
LPL - Phillips, LGE, Panasonic, Toshiba, Amtran.
Samsung - Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, JVC, Sanyo
AUO - Samsung, Philips, Toshiba, Panasonic, LGE
CMO - Funai, Xoceco, Westinghouse, Proview, TTE
Sharp - Sharp, Philips, JVC, Mitsubishi, Panasonic
CPT - Philips, Funai, Konka, Samsung, TPV
QDI - Sharp, Philips
From HDTVExpert:Incidentally, this is the first time I’ve seen a company offer both a 46-inch and a 47-inch product in the same line. Given that Toshiba OEMs their LCD glass (and possibly much of the TV, too), that’s a sure sign that more than one LCD fabber is being sourced.
I find it hard to believe that Samsung and Sony have problems keeping up their own supplies in their partnership that they would add another in the mix when Sony has been seeking an additional partner in Asia the past year to expand capacity. Not saying your wrong - just doesn't seem likely it's Samsung.
