Illustration for article titled Panasonic Putting Plasma Display Tech Into Cellphones, Undoubtedly Angering David Lynch

Update: It appears this story is completely false. PRNewswire now claims that AbleComm told them to pass along the news that everyone should disregard their release, because the entire thing is "completely false". Thanks AbleComm. Might want to put your April Fool's news releases on April 1, instead of April 3.

Panasonic's just revealed its plans to put low-voltage plasma technology into cellphones, including phones that are headed for AT&T's Mobile TV Service. They've supposedly been working on this tech for "nearly a decade", and if their technology in actual Plasma TVs are any indication, these cellphones are going to be looking very nice. It's just as the Plasma inventor predicted—the tech's heading to smaller displays. We're not sure how David Lynch would feel about this, but as long as people just use these screens to watch lousy movies and not Mulholland Drive, he'll probably be OK with it. Mmmm, Rita.
