AMOLED Screen Shortage to End in 2011

You might recall that certain devices like the Droid Incredible, which originally shipped with Samsung’s AMOLED panel, was switched to Sony’s Super LCD screen after AMOLED shortages delayed the production of the device. In fact, the S-LCD screen has been used in other devices like the HTC Desire, as HTC awaits a bump in production of AMOLED screens.

In Korea, Samsung is on track to bring a new plant online in early 2011 that will help to vastly increase supply of AMOLED panels. Not only that, but China is setting up a supply chain for OLED, which could not only increase supply further, but drive costs down.
