That's a helluva nicely structured deal. UNXL does nothing but gets 50% of the profits or, they land the customer and get 70% even though Carestream does all the work. AND, the 70% equation already has pre-identified potential customers.
The table could not be better set.
Agree. Dell World is not about the touch screen specifically, but DELL IS UNXL's first customer, so it behooves shareholders to hang on every word for a better sense of direction.
With DELL now private, it will be more than interesting to see how they handle future PR's.
Wonder if they will have any working demos of their next generation touchscreen (INTOUCH) products.
The first coming out party for Michael Dell since he took DELL private. And, DELL happens to be UniPixel's FIRST partner/customer.
This is headed significantly higher as the tides shift, based on hard news developments.
How many FAKE "investigations" have been filed and portrayed as real, only to VANISH?
An old, tired game the shorts play. Hard to believe anyone falls for it. Considering the low volume days, most of the decline is artificially induced by shorts trading amongst themselves.
We all know what happens when the word gets out on the Next Phase of operations.
As soon as confidence is restored, we move back to more appropriate levels.
What are the projections, $3+/share for 2014??? Even half of that is an explosive concept from current levels.
Intel's interest in the retail segment has them focused on an increased "retail" presence. All good for introducing new product features.
I think their check to INTEL gets cashed this quarter.
See INTEL, DELL and KODAK for real news.
I expect a December rally as shorts take some profits to clean up their year end balance sheets, coupled with good, hard news from the company and the expectations from any CES 2014 revelations.
Then there is the matter of KODAK production capacity milestones again being met and News of some of those 20+ customers involved in evaluating INTOUCH for their new product offerings in early Q1.
With the pps depressed due to a mini lull in news and an ongoing hack-attack, UNXL will be seen as undervalued and over manipulated.
Also, UNXL will conclude a record breaking quarter, although I am not sure if they will be able to address that until the mid Fegruary Q is discussed.
The future of this company is something for which to give thanks !
All the ingredients are there for a big rally.

Margin pressures is exactly what Killion stated would be an issue in this industry and that UNXL's cost saving on major rollouts is significant as compared to the competition.
That is the point of posting this article, not the acquisition aspect. Although my shares are for sale at $97/share.
"Expect 2014 to bring a flurry of acquisitions, mergers, and failures as PC hardware vendors of all sizes struggle to maintain their desktop and notebook business while attempting to capitalize on a tablet market that will see great volumes driving limited value," Canalys said in a press release."
Tablets to Make Up Half of 2014 PC Market
Apple top 2013 vendor, Android to dominate in 2014

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- The market watcher Canalys predicted in a report issued Tuesday that tablets will make up half the PC market in 2014.
The research firm said tablets make up 50% of shipments in the total client PC market, which includes desktops, notebooks, and tablets. It expects 285 million tablets to ship in 2014 and 396 million in 2017.
"Expect 2014 to bring a flurry of acquisitions, mergers, and failures as PC hardware vendors of all sizes struggle to maintain their desktop and notebook business while attempting to capitalize on a tablet market that will see great volumes driving limited value," Canalys said in a press release.
Worldwide, the client PC market grew 18% in the third quarter, with tablets accounting for 40% of shipments. Analysts have noted Apple's position as a top tablet vendor throughout the year with stable desktop and notebook business. Other vendors have seen shipments deteriorate, Canalys said.
"Apple's decline in PC market share is unavoidable when considering its business model. Samsung narrowly took the lead in EMEA this quarter and Apple will lose its position to competitors in more markets in the future," Canalys senior analyst Tim Coulling said in the release. "However, Apple is one of the few companies making money from the tablet boom. Premium products attract high value consumers; for Apple, remaining highly profitable and driving revenue from its entire ecosystem is of greater importance than market share statistics."
Canalys forecasts that Microsoft will take 5% of the tablet market in 2014, versus 2% in 2012; the acquisition of Nokia's device business is expected to boost marketshare.
The quarterly forecast also shows Android-derived operating systems driving the market; Canalys expects them to
