Samsung to turn to plasma in face of LCD shortage?

LCD shortage may boost PDP

Samsung may be looking to mimic LG in building smaller-sized plasma TVs, say anonymous industry sources. While plasma is almost universally reserved for sets 37 inches or larger, Samsung may be aiming to replicate LG's 32-inch 32PC5RV, simply due to a shortage of LCD panels available from suppliers. The shortage has been persistent, accounts say, and may have been the main influence behind the LG set. If Samsung does produce a 32-inch plasma, it will not be in the immediate future however; plasma-building capacity is said to be limited in its own right, as a result of existing demand from Samsung, Philips, and various Chinese companies.
