Foxconn to Distribute Sharp LCDs

DigiTimes:

Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) has reportedly formed a task force aiming to help distribute TFT-LCD panels from Japan-based Sharp, according to industry sources. Foxconn declined to comment.

Sharp has suspended its 8G and 10G LCD fabs due to natural gas shortages and normal operations are expected to resume on May 6 at the earliest. Foxconn is OEM to many TV brands including Sony and will no doubt be a positive influence in distributing Sharp LCDs.
