Samsung Mobile Display factories are planning to bring another production facility online, while competitors in Korea, Taiwan and Singapore are increasing their production on AMOLED facilities also. China in the meantime is working on it's own OLED supply chain too.

2011 is set to become a big year for the AMOLED displays - this is only a good thing for consumers and enthusiasts alike.
