Sharp strikes at OLEDs with new mobile LCD screens

Shars mobile LCD tech

Electronics giant Sharp claims it has developed a new LCD panel which will allow much greater performance than those currently used in devices such as cellphones. Reuters notes that the panel is supposed to have the highest contrast of any two-inch LCD on the market, and most crucially, a response speed three times as fast as any other -- placing it in competition with OLED displays, which are often praised for their response and contrast. Sharp hints that equivalent OLEDs may cost two or three times as much.

Unfortunately for electronics buyers, the technology will not become available anytime soon. Sample panel shipments are only scheduled to ship by the end of the year, with full production beginning sometime thereafter. Sharp expects to ramp sales up to $836 million by March 2009.
