Goliaths Face a Nano Challenger
Motorola and Samsung Electronics are thinking small -- really small -- when it comes to displays. As a result, these Goliaths could face a litigious David in the near future.
Motorola and Samsung recently unveiled flat-panel displays that, because of their reliance on nanotechnology, surpass conventional screens. Carbon nanotubes, the revolutionary substance responsible for a number of nano-breakthroughs in the past decade, figure in both.
A micro-cap company, Nano-Proprietary, claims the basic patent for several emissive display technologies, including those using carbon nanotubes.
