DigiTimes heard from Taiwanese LCD panel makers that the first notebooks with widescreen 3D LCD displays will likely be launched later this year or in 2008.
Although using 3D panels for notebooks will reduce brightness and increase power consumption of the notebooks while it will require new software and solution, the US-based notebook vendors are still interested in the market for game users, the panel makers indicated. Additionally, 3D displays have gained popularity in other applications.

Last June, Samsung SDI showed a 4.3-inch active-matrix (AM) OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display for mobile phones at San Francisco's Society for Information Display (SID) show.

The company has completed developing 3D panels and expects to ship the panels to handset makers in the first half of 2007, said the company. The Korea-based panel maker estimated the 3D display market will exceed US$2 billion in 2010, compared to US$300 million in 2007.
