    How will this impact GLW ??

    It is an acknowledgment that they (Hitachi, Matsushita, and Canon) are losers or at best way, way behind the leader Sharp. Matsushita bet on plasma displays, and is losing market share to LCD TVs everyday. Canon only cares about smaller displays, because they just want their digital cameras to win. Hitachi is just trying to sell its money losing LCD display business to others.

    Sharp is the leader by far in the LCD display business, and Toshiba made the right move by dealing to buy its future LCD displays from Sharp. Clearly GLW made the right decision by tying its 10 generation glass factory to Sharp and building the plant right next to the new Sharp factory.

      LCD-TV shipments are expected to nearly double from this year to 148.4 million units in 2011, according to DisplaySearch, an Austin, Texas-based industry research firm. DisplaySearch estimates LCD shipments will grow 30% to 98 million units, making up more than half of total television sales, in the next year alone. In contrast, plasma-TV shipments, though growing, are expected to amount to less than 14 million units next year.
