However, sometimes there is news that seems decently likely to be true, and yesterday evening such news broke from Bloomberg. According to the report, Nintendo has partnered with Samsung Display Co. to begin mass production of 7-inch 720p-resolution OLED panels as early as June, with an initial monthly target of…
