We've got faith it can deliver too -- last summer the Korean manufacturer was showing off a 31-inch model (above) and it sounds like it's shifting focus completely towards larger sizes. CEO Kwon Young-soo has said that IPS technology is much better suited for the mobile space. Of course, LG has promised impressively-sized panels before and, even if such a set does make it to market, chances are you'll have to take out a second mortgage to afford one."
How many times LG has promised to bring an OLED to the market?
Anyway, just the week prior to that report, I saw this in the Korea Times website:
"While Samsung is investing heavily in OLEDs and flexible displays, LG Display is still passive on the faster migration of next-generation displays saying LCDs with better viewing quality are good enough to attract big firms such as Apple, Dell and Hewlett-Packard (HP)."
