Well thats pretty smart. They are using their Amoled division to prop up their LCD division.

PA got the news wrong. This has nothing to do with the OLED division.
http://www.samsungdisplay.com is the company now, and will deal exclusively with TFT-LCD displays. No OLED business for them.
Ask yourself this -- why would they merge a non-profiting business with OLED business which has endless possibilities? The moment they initially announced the spinning-off LCD business, their shares increased 5% in a single day.
Samsung Mobile Display (http://www.samsungsmd.com) is the manufacturer of OLED. This unit has nothing to do with LCD business of newly formed groupwww.samsungdisplay.com.
Latest news is that Samsung Electronics is going to take-over the OLED business from Samsung Mobile Display (http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/02/07/us-samsung-display-idINTRE8160IR20120207?type=companyNews)
Also note that "Samsung Mobile Display" is an unlisted company. Samsung Electronics actually has major stake in the SMD.
