Intel LCOS again

I'm thinking I should take this report with a grain of salt as it is the Inquirer reporting it - but I'll be very interested if they CAN make 50" HDTV units for £1000 before the end of the year.

The report has now been edited with a higher price. It's still good VFM although it doesn't say what res the units will have. 720p or 1080i?

Intel backs out of HD screen chips
Chip maker Intel has announced the shelving of its heralded LCOS chip for big flat screen TVs. In January the company said its unique one megapixel Liquid Crystal On Silicon chips would be ready late this year.

The problem according to analysts is that this is not an easy technology to master and current products from Texas Instruments and Sony have already captured the one megapixel market so Intel needs more product differentiation before it could enter the market. ..............
