    Nice acquisition for Samsung, looks like they're dead serious about penetrating this market.

    cool... hope to see some good displays come out of this. Although i'm tired of seeing regular old TN panels in mobile devices, so one of Samsungs goals better be good viewing angles as well. IPS, MVA, etc. is good but i'm not sure of their compatibilities with what Samsung has in mind in this buyout of technology.

    Samsung has been leading the pack for mobiles with its AMOLED displays. I think that shows that innovation in displays is important to Samsung, so Liquavista's technology will likely get a real boost from the acquisition and consumers will get their hands on the technology sooner.

    If Liquavista's Electrowetting Display Technology can produce displays that surpass current Super AMOLED screens used on Samsung mobile phones, then I am definitely looking forward to getting my hands on this technology in my next Samsung mobile phone purchase.
