Pioneer Elite returns as Sharp LCD

Sharp has announced that it has licensed the Pioneer Elite brand name and will be selling Elite LCD panels latter this year. How "Kuro" they will be remains to be seen.
This new Kuro development isn't as off-the-wall as it seems. Back in 2008 Pioneer had a deal with Sharp to build LCD panels. Pioneer left the HDTV business before any Kuro LCD panels came to market.
