LG says they will increase their R&D investment by 25%. They seem to want to take advantage of the economic downturn to increase market share. They will invest over $2 Billion on 'future growth business' (also 25% increase from last year).
Back in January LG reported a large quarterly loss, and said they will move investments to either OLEDs or Solar cells. I'm guessing they are being even more aggressive now, with a larger investment in several areas.
