LG Display not handcuffed to Apple in 2013
70% of its profits came from business conducted with Apple in 2012. Also of concern to LG is the weakening Japanese Yen. The declining currency makes exports more profitable for Japanese display suppliers like Japan Display and Sharp. LG Display might be forced to cut prices and accept lower margins, or lose some relationships that it has cultivated over the years. In the case of Apple, LG Display just wants to reduce its dependence on the Cupertino based firm, not cut them off completely.
In its most recent earnings report, LG Display posted profits of 319 billion won ($298 million USD). Television display's accounted for 43% of revenue while 17% was attributed to tablet panels. 14% of revenue came from sales of displays for other mobile devices.

I've got an LG 3d LED TV. The picture is great, and the passive 3d is so much less taxing than active. Not that I use 3d much at all.

Don't make any more nexus 4's.
Make a new one with exynos or snap dragon and lte.
The nexus should have never skimmed over lte!
And tegra blows. It's probably mass produced and cheap. I but it blows.
