AMOLED and SLCD screens will be used on Nexus One and Desire

A shortage of devices on the smartphone market like the high-end iPhone 4 smartphone is often caused by a lack of key components. Builders of LCD screens for smartphones like Samsung and LG Display can’t keep up with demand from Apple and other companies like HTC.

HTC is having problems getting enough of its AMOLED displays for use in its smartphones like the HTC Desire and the Nexus One.

HTC announced today that it would move some of its smartphones from AMOLED screens that are in short supply to a more readily available Super LCD or SLCD screens. HTC figures that the differences in the screens are so minimal that buyers won't be able to tell the difference between the two screen types. HTC will apparently continue to source as many AMOLED screens as it can and will fill in the gaps with the SLCD from Sony.

The display that will be used is the Sony VSPEC III LCD promising good color, contrast, broad viewing angles, and improved power efficiency. HTC will likely catch grief from buyers if there is no way to tell which type of screen they are getting on models that use both AMOLEDs and SLCD displays.

“HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays. The new SLCD display technology enables us to ramp up our production capabilities quickly to meet the high-demand,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “The SLCD displays provide consumers with a comparable visual experience to HTC’s current 3.7 inch displays with some additional benefits including battery performance.”

the HTC desire i got was not impressed on the screen as my HTC HD1 and the HTC G1 text is normal on the desire (guessing the nexus one) all the dots are offset to each other so no lines any more just offset lines and not so clear text

Samsung galaxy S and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (big one) are fully flat lines and perfect DPI rendering (text and pictures) that my dad and sister got it

bit stupid of me getting the HTC desire (was the only google phone they had that was 1ghz) but apart form that the desire is way better then the G1 every thing just happens right away as well, i can use it for more then 5hrs as well with out charging or fitting an 2200mha batt (as i did), norm use 1.5 days i get out of the HTC desire unless i run something i know will run it down faster then normal (where as the g1 or iphone seems to die quite fast under light use)
