Sharp Corp. in Japan will be realigning its production plans for LCD panels at key plants in order to increase the output of higher-margin, and small- and medium-sized displays used in mobile handsets and portable game machines.

Currently, Sharp produces 10-inch or smaller panels at its Tachiko plant in Mie Prefecture and also in Nara Prefecture, which utilizes 80 percent of its LCD panel division's operating profit.

The current business year may achieve a 17 percent increase in sales of smaller panels worth ?401.5 billion ($3.6 billion at ?109.69:$1).
