In another sign of LCD progress, shipments of color LCD screens for mobile phones will outstrip those of monochrome LCD screens this year, research firm iSuppli/Stanford Resources predicted Wednesday.
Wow. I had forgotten that cel phones with monochrome screens were still being made. Sure, I still have a couple of phones kicking around with monochrome screens, but they’re left over from my years of Sprint. At wireless stores the monochrome phones tend to get hidden in the corner, while the color ones are showcased. Except for those tiny Siemens phones, and the requisite oldskool Nokia. Those will be around forever.
