What a lame article. Of course this TV will sell. There are a lot of filthy rich people out there who all have to buy the latest gadgets. At 11 inches this TV is definitely a gadget. The thing will probably sell out in one week.

Plasma used to cost well over $10,000 when it came out. In fact, I believe it was around $20,000. Look at plasma now. As technology matures it gets better and cheaper.

I don't expect OLED to be the main TV technology until 2016 at the earliest. LCD's and plasmas are fine right now, but OLEDs are definitely gonna be the better choice in a few years.

and also, don't expect me to pay a few thousand dollars for such a small screen. i dont have the money >_<
