Two companies who on their own have each made respective marks in the industry are doing a collaboration effort to make a killing in the flat-panel television industry. Sharp and Toshiba, two companies that are widely regarded separately as key proponents in the LCD TV industry, are planning to work with each other this time.
Basically, both companies would feed off each others’ assets. They would be buying screens and semiconductor chips from each other. More specifically, both companies stressed their working relationship would break down to something like this: Toshiba will turn to Sharp for the 32-inch and larger flat-panel displays used in its LCD televisions while Sharp willÂ receive from Toshiba the chips used in its TV sets.
Their plan will get underway during the year from April and will slowlyÂ inch up and gearÂ towards the year 2010. Now, all that is left us to wonder is will other manufacturers soon follow suit? The world awaits.
