Television glass producer Samsung Corning is reportedly in negotiations with France and Japan-based glass manufacturers including Japan“s NEG and Asahi Glass about a move into the glass for Plasma Display Panel (PDP) market. However, the company said that no significant progress had been made. “We still need to finish negotiations with U.S.-based Corning regarding launching into the PDP-glass business,” a Samsung official said, adding it may launch the glass business without finding a strategic partner. PDP and LCD are competing technologies in the flat panel television and display market, each offering advantages and disadvantages to users.
