Samsung to announce a 7" Super-AMOLED panel next week, start producing them in mid 2011

Samsung will unveil a new 7" Super-AMOLED panel next week at the FPD International exhibition (November 10th). The new panel will offer 1200x600 resolution and will be available in mid-2011. Samsung will use their upcoming 5.5-Gen AMOLED plant to produce those panels - so there shouldn't be any supply issues (the new production plant will boost Samsung's AMOLED capacity ten fold, to 30 million displays a month).

Obviously such a 7" Super-AMOLED panel will be a perfect fit to Samsung next-gen Galaxy-Tab. Samsung already said that they wanted to use an AMOLED, but couldn't do so because they can't make enough. They also said that they plan to expand the Galaxy-Tab line with AMOLED-using tablets in 2011. So everything falls into place...
