LCD makers agree to cooperate on environmental issues

Representatives from the world's largest LCD (liquid crystal display) manufacturing companies have agreed at a meeting in Tokyo to exchange information on environmental matters concerning display panels.

The companies came together under the umbrella of the World LCD Industry Cooperation Committee, a recently formed cross-industry group that held its inaugural meeting in Tokyo on Tuesday, said Tamotsu Harada, a spokesman for the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Association (JEITA), which hosted the meeting.

At the meeting, representatives from Sharp Corp., Hitachi Ltd., Toshiba Corp., NEC Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., LG Philips LCD Co. Ltd. and Acer Unipac Optoelectronics agreed to establish a communication channel through which the companies can exchange information regarding environmental technologies with an aim to producing more advanced display panels.

Specifically, the group will work on sharing information related to the disposal of waste LCD panels and in the area of reducing PFC (perfluorocarbon) emissions during manufacturing, JEITA said in a brief statement.

Together, the seven companies have over 90 percent share of the world market for LCD panels.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
