LG to beat competitors

LG will be rolling out its 8G television line at least half a year ahead of other Taiwanese rivals, including S-LCD, AU Optronics, and Chi Mei Optoelectronics. According to DIGITIMES, the Korean electronics manufacturer already completed its fabrication shells, and has scheduled production to begin by March 2009, and full-scale production of 32 inch OLED TVs to commence in 2011. LG's competitors will start production in late 2008.

The P8 line will initially consist of 32, 47, 52, and 57 inch form factors, despite 8G's typical focus on 50-inch and larger screens.

LG also attempted to dispelled worries about LCD TV sales as well, with the marketing vice president for the company's TV division sales said first quarter estimates were accurate with reports filed, whereas the second quarter would be slightly harder to forcast.
