No Widescreen 12-14-inch Notebook Displays Until Q2'09
Though notebook makers are already using 16:9 widescreen displays in new models, it's still early to speak about their mass production. This information was supplied by the source referring to companies that produce notebooks on ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) terms.
According to this information, notebooks with 12-14-inch 16:9 displays will enter mass production not before Q2'09.
In H2'08 first-tier vendors are focused on 15.6-inch, 18.4-inch and 10.1-inch displays with 16:9 aspect ratio. Apparently, this includes both usual notebooks and netbooks. Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO), AU Optronics (AUO) and LG Display (LGD) are ready to start shipping 10.1-inch panels in October.
