Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba are merging their small panel LCD businesses with the Japanese government taking a large portion of the ownership of the new venture.

This affects all small screens, both TVs and PC Monitors.

I am not sure what the result of this will be, but consolidation of a business segment like this is usually a sign of the market commodotizing aggressively.
