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.”

Perhaps you should do some research into what the term third world actually means.

Don't get your panties in a knot.
It's called sarcasm not sure if you heard of it?

Maybe get a dictionary and look it up... while you there maybe look up "Socialism" "Communism" and "Democracy"... once you found the definition maybe you can enlighten some of the other US posters on what those terms mean

More arrogant fat Europeans preaching to us lowly Americans. No wonder the world hates Europe.

BTW, Europe is much closer to third world than the USA, just saying. Especially places like Portugal and Spain.

So perhaps by "third world" he meant they should sell these substandard phones in Europe. Lolololol. That's pretty funny. True though.

Although with Obama, America will join theEuro's down in third world land soon enough

"More arrogant fat Europeans preaching to us lowly Americans. No wonder the world hates Europe."

Should that not be.... lowly Europeans preaching to fat Americans?

When you say the world hates Europe... you mean the US. News flash the world does not mean America... However as soon as you admit that, you will need to change the baseball "World" series to fat guy swining a stick series!
