According to forecasts from NEC, more than 90 percent of all desktop LCD display shipments will be widescreen by the start of 2011:
At the current rate of growth, NEC says that it expects more than 90 percent of all desktop LCD displays it ships to be widescreen by the end of 2010.
Birgit Sommerer, European product marketing manager for NEC’s LCD display division, also said that approximately 50 percent of NEC’s display shipments today are already wide-format LCDs.
Despite this industry shift, Sommerer said that NEC still plans to offer solutions for those that require standard 4:3 displays. She didn’t elaborate on what or how many 4:3 displays we can expect to see in NEC’s range in the 2010/2011 timeframe, but I think it’s fair to say that choices will be more limited than they are today – it’s all going to depend on demand.
