    HTC running low on AMOLED stock, will add SLCD to the mix for some models
    By Chris Ziegler posted Jun 25th 2010 at 7:52PM





    AMOLED displays in phones haven't necessarily lived up to their promise; they'd been billed as the be-all, end-all answer for clarity, vibrance, and low power consumption, but in reality, the latest and greatest LCDs look just as good, offer similar viewing angles, have little to no impact on battery life, and fare far better in direct sunlight. We've been able to confirm this evening that HTC will be adding an additional supplier of displays later this year -- Sony -- which will be delivering its Super TFT LCD tech as a mobile exclusive (initially, at least) to key HTC handsets, some of which are already in the marketplace.


    Specifically, Samsung's had a devil of a time keeping up with deliveries of its 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display, which means that the Desire, Droid Incredible, and Nexus One could all theoretically be impacted -- but because this is a problem of the demand for displays outstripping supply (or at least the supply that Samsung is letting HTC buy), at least some of the affected phones will likely be offered both in AMOLED and SLCD varieties. How those products will be differentiated in the market is unclear, but it may not matter much -- we're told that the displays are virtually indistinguishable. We're working to get our hands on an SLCD phone just as soon as we can, and when we do, we'll put our eyeballs on the case.

    Good for HTC. I hope in the future, they have at least a back up vendor for every part in their phones, if thats possible.

    At least Sony doesnt have any smartphones coming out......I smell something fishy with Samsung, considering they're getting ready to release the Galaxy S and Pro.

    I mean if Samsung is focusing more on their phones and put HTC on the back burner, I dont blame them. It is their screen. This whole thing just could have been handled alot better.

    5.5 in?!?! And ppl complaining about the size of the X....lol If the Dell Streak keeps flip flopping back n forth between phone/tablet at 5in, I know this one is too.

    To me I would treat the Streak as a Tablet. Now THAT thing is huge.
