HP's new LED-based notebooks will feature Microsoft's Vista operating system (OS) and will aim at high-end, multimedia uses, the sources said, adding that using LEDs as the backlight source for large-size applications will become more popular thanks to more models of such kind from US-based notebook brands.
Nevertheless, Taiwan-based LED makers will not likely earn orders from such major brands, as notebook makers have high requirements for their product specifications – a brightness of over 1,680 nits – and Taiwan-based makers have yet to offer such a brightness level, the sources said. Makers such as Nichia and Cree will be the most likely candidates for orders of the backlight sources, the sources added.
