Gotta love OLED. 10 years ago, you couldn't see the screen on your handheld (GBA) outdoors and 15 you had to attach a stupid light to see it in the dark (GB)!

Technology is really advancing fast. What an age we live in.

Imagine telling this to someone 100 years in the past. They would crap their pants.
"Doors open themselves!"
"You can play games using a handheld device that emits lights to create psuedo-3D images!"
"You can see naked women instantly using a device that runs on billions of microscopic electrical switches!"

....... I love you.....
That has to be one of the best comments I read in a while.. I have been trying to say the same for years now... coming from a gamer who started at PONG it truly is a beautiful thing

Wow the Vitas screen is fantastic and it makes the 3DS and PSP screens look like crap. Im so happy that they went with a big high resolution OLED screen.

I'm really glad Sony went with an AMOLED screen for the Vita.

Since owning a Samsung Galaxy S (and now S II) I can't go back to LCD.

It's not an AMOLED, it's only an OLED. But OLEDs have better pixel density than AMOLEDs because of the pentile matrix that AMOLEDs use, so to me an OLED looks better than an AMOLED. Plus this is higher resolution than the Galaxy S and S II.

[BTW, the Galaxy S uses Super AMOLED and the S II uses Super AMOLED+. Super AMOLED+ (not regular Super AMOLED) doesn't use the pentile matrix, so it looks really really really good.)]

Just be aware of burn-in with OLEDs. That's the only I don't like about them. But it's very hard to get burn-in unless you leave it on the same thing for a long time, so be careful when using the browser, because it might keep the buttons from it on the screen (if there are any, I'm not sure.)

AMOLED does not signify the use of a PenTile matrix (ie: RGBG pixel configuration as opposed to RGB). It's actually just a note of where the pixel controller is.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Samsung have just gotten in the habit of using name differentiations to indicate PenTile (Super AMOLED) vs standard (Super AMOLED Plus) configurations for their Super AMOLED line.

So I spoke too soon - the OLED display on the Vita could be AMOLED of PMOLED (Passive Matrix) which has nothing to do with PenTile. AMOLED is simply the one most commonly used for OLED displays, so it's a fairly safe assumption that the Vita's OLED screen uses an active matrix controller.

And yeah, hopefully burn-in won't be too much of an issue. The only area of my SGS II screen where I can see a faint shadow is the status bar at the top of the screen (slight shadow of the edge and time on it), which shouldn't be a problem on Vita since there's no always-there status bar visible in games.
