+ - 26" FED volume production in 2009?->

Submitted by Areyoukiddingme
Areyoukiddingme (1289470) writes "Field Emission Technologies of Japan claims they will begin volume production of a 26" FED at the end of 2009.

To help it meet the mass-production deadline in late 2009, FE Technologies will acquire Pioneer's Kagoshima plant by the end of 2008. The Japanese company will invest $183 million to $274 million (20 to 30 billion yen) in manufacturing equipment.

...

The initial application for FE Technologies' 26-inch FED panels will be as "master" monitors, used by TV broadcasters to check picture quality.

No word on price, but you can bet the answer is "if you have to ask, you can't afford one." As a Sony spin-off, they should have some legal cover from the patent trolls. Could full color full size FEDs finally escape the vaporware tag?"
