What I find most interesting is yet another Japanese company teaming up, in a very real way, with a Taiwanese company so as to be more competitive. Now, will Foxconn combine their assembly and LCD tech to disadvantage the competition or will it really mean lower prices and better selection for the consumer due to better competition?

Foxconn may want to dominate LCD market. Nonetheless, the immediate benefit is lowering the cost of LCDs that are widely used for Apple products and others. Any news on Apple going to use AMOLED soon?

I wonder if the move was purely for CEM purposes or if they are positioning themselves for the growing LCD market? If they pick up the 50% share of Hitachi Displays Ltd how much of the overall LCD market will they control?

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
