Graphene vs CNTs?

One research at the event said graphene, though it lacks a bandgap, is closer to commercial reality than CNT? I'd love to hear more views on this.

Rick, I don't know about the graphene side of things, but as an fyi, the carbon nanotubes leverage an SOI wafer -- I wrote about this in ASN a couple years ago. IBM "fabricated trenches made of hafnium oxide onto SOI wafers, which allows the self-assembly by the carbon nanotubes into neat rows rather than a spaghetti-like tangle." (see http://bit.ly/XPEFXc)
