Rumor – Panasonic will Leave the TV Business to Focus on iPad Screens  Print E-mail

Last week a Japanese business news service called Diamond Online revealed that Panasonic is planning to exit the TV industry in favor of producing iPad screens.  That's something we'd normally scoff at, but Panasonic hasn't expressly denied anything.  Instead, the company says that these claims "are basically speculative in nature and contain a number of errors of fact or misinterpretation."


It's clear that Panasonic has something up its sleeve, but just what that is has yet to be revealed.  Since iPad screens use LCD tech, it could be that Panasonic LCD plants will change over production.  That would keep Panasonic in the plasma game, which would make a lot of plasma enthusiasts very happy to hear.  With the reveal of the iPad Mini happening  later today, you can expect that we'll hear more from Panasonic before too long.
