The report said Compal will manufacture 30- and 40-inch LCD TVs for Toshiba, which has been active in diversifying further into LCD TV sales.
In the past Compal combined with Hitachi, but LCD TV shipments to that client remained low, reaching only 180,000 units in 2007.
Compal has also announced a strategic alliance with Syntax-Brillian, in which the maker will immediately begin manufacturing an initial order of 300,000 Olevia LCD HDTVs.
