Dell Sues Toshiba, Hitachi, Others for LCD Cartel

On Friday of last week, Dell filed a lawsuit at a U.S. district court in San Francisco against a group of five LCD makers in Asia. A spokesman at Dell's Japan unit yesterday told Reuters that the company had filed suit against Sharp, Hitachi, Toshiba, Seiko Epson and HannStar for allegedly fixing the price of LCD panels

Details about the suit are pretty scant. Reuters reports that both Sharp and Hitachi said that they were aware of the suit but declined to comment on the matter. Dell has not said what it is seeking in terms of damages.

    Maybe they can use the money from this to develop proper bezel-less screens. Of course, if I were to pick a company to design bezel-free tech for computers, it'd be Samsung - not Dell...

    If they do develop bezel-free screens, that'd make it a lot more feasible for multi-screen displays. But where would the buttons go? :O
