Right now you can get a flat-panel HDTV in LCD or plasma, and they each have their strengths and weaknesses (which will be addressed in a future home theater feature), but one thing about plasma is that it’s got more vibrant color than LCD, which has better contrast and is cheaper to manufacture.
On a cellphone screen, though, plasma’s low-power design would actually make it a better choice than LCD for retaining a long battery life.
In addition a plasma vs. OLED war would bring out good ol’ price wars, so we win both ways. I love the future.
UPDATE – It’s a hoax.
