"The spin-off will allow us to make quicker business decisions and respond to our clients' needs more swiftly," said Donggun Park, executive vice president and head of Samsung's LCD unit.

And the LCD business thing... yes yes sad... but for me it is just another castling move... so yes noted... for future reasoning. And yes, as a bonus from writer some damn nice looking chick... what's unnatural here?

Yes unless they used 3rd party screens which they have done in the past to cut prices.
For a while there were only 4 mfg's of LCD panel's, not sure if that has changed :confused:

Samsung make's great panel's, them and Sharp are the best IMO
