Universal Display donated technology and materials to Toshiba's portable OLED lamps

Remember Toshiba's portable OLED lamp? Universal Display donated OLED materials and technology for those lamps. It seems that Toshiba made the actual panels (which was a surprise to us because we didn't know they had an OLED lighting program) as UDC provided only knowhow and materials. This is the first time we hear of a collaboration between UDC and Toshiba, but we don't know whether it extends beyond this specific project.

Toshiba will make 100 units of this lamp, and donate these to quake-hit areas (50 units were already donated to the evacuation center in Kesennuma City, Miyagi Prefecture). Toshiba has no plans to sell these to consumers.
