Widescreen displays to be used in 90% of notebooks in 2008

Posted on Tuesday, October 17 2006 @ 02:57:28 CEST by

DigiTimes writes widescreen displays will account for 90% of the notebook market in 2008:
Nearly 90% of the notebooks to be shipped by the end of 2008 will use widescreen panels, compared to 69% in the second quarter of 2006 and 76% by year-end, according to research firm DisplaySearch.

As Windows Vista operating system (OS) is soon to hit the market, first-tier notebook vendors such as Hewlett-Packard (HP), Acer and Dell have decided not to launch 14- and 15.1-inch notebooks with aspect ratio of 4:3 any more and opted for 14.1- and 15.4-inch widescreen models instead, Taiwan-based notebook makers said. More and more vendors will enter 13.3-and 17-inch widescreen notebook market soon, the makers added.
By the end of 2007 it will likely be about 70% of the market. This year 15.4-inch widescreens are expected to grab 39% of the market, followed by 14.1-inch widescreen displays at 17%.
