OLED: The Future of Flat-Panel TVs Starts This December

For the last three years, Team Xbox has been covering new flat-panel display technologies, with a special focus on OLED, which I firmly believe will be the technology that will make current flat panel HDTVs look as old as the cathode ray tube.

An Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) flat-panel display is made of small lumps of organic material that glow when electrical current is applied, a process known as electro-phosphorescence.

This technology can produce self-luminous screens that don't require a source of light like to work (thus requiring less power), so manufacturers can obtain screens that are even thinner than LCD displays because there is no backlight.

Yesterday, Sony re-confirmed its plans to release the world's first OLED TV in 2007.

dude ... you're only making the rest of us look bad.

On a sidenote, the TV should be awesome. I remember articles on here about this around a year ago. Those TV's were only an inch thick or so. They weren't too big though. Probably a computer moniter size. I wonder when this tech will be available enough for the average person to be able to afford a 42' screen ...

Maybe thats what nasim's trying to do...

Another SPG, SonySoldiers type?

Acting like a complete turd to make the rest of you look bad.

It's true, isn't it nasim? He's actually a hardcore 360 fanboy in disguise. He thinks he's fooling everyone with his turdtacularness.

I want to be as far away from those brands and models as possible. Microsoft sucks at producing hardware. Period.

Blasphemy4036d ago

TV is a rip off. $1,700 for a 11 inch display? Only a fool would purchase one.

nobizlikesnowbiz4036d ago

Yea like all new tech it's gonna be hideously expensive for a few years until it gets cheaper to manufacture it.

For now it'll cater to the very wealthy who have nothing better to blow their ridiculous paychecks on, other than 10,000 dollar/night hookers and coke parties.

and not made by microsoft which will break 5 times a year. Thankfully they haven't ventured into that area yet. Just crappy console hardware and iPod wannabe's.

Sony and Nintendo = top of line quality. PS2 launch system still runs flawlessly.

because if does break they wont replace it. *cough* optical drives *cough*

MS makes TV or monitors lol? News to me, but they will probably get pink screen of death. I kid I kid.

SlaughterMeister4036d ago
