Bad news for Samsung today, as one of the top makers of Android smartphones, HTC, has decided to replace Samsung as the provided of its mobile screens and move to Sony instead.
That is, at least, for the Nexus One and the Desire, which are both available for sale outside the US. HTC has decided that Sony's proprietary Super LCD (SLCD) screens are better-suited for these devices.
According to Sony, SLCD technology offers a wider viewing angle, better energy savings, and a brighter display potential as compared to traditional LCD.
In addition, reports have surfaced that Samsung has been unable to meet HTC's demand for displays, and that means it is time to cut the cord.
This does not affect the production of any other current HTC device, yet, although it could have broader implications for the future of both HTC and Sony.
