LED backlights to penetrate notebook market in Q2 06

The adoption of LEDs as a backlight source for 12- and 14" notebooks should begin in the second quarter of 2006, when the price gap between CCFL- (cathode fluorescent lamp-) and LED- based backlight modules narrows to less than $3, according to LED maker Everlight Electronics.

Currently, available notebooks that feature displays based on white LED technology are Sony's VAIO TX series, the Libretto U100 from Toshiba and the T70 (only in Japan) from Fujitsu.
