Sony OLED to Ship by Year End: Reuters

While no official announcement was yet made in the U.S., Reuters is reporting that Sony announced in Tokyo that the company will be selling the ultra-thin OLED displays by the end of this year.

According to Reuters, the OLED display was the most popular attraction at a recent event. “At a display forum in Tokyo, customers, suppliers and even rival TV makers turned their backs on 50-inch and bigger TVs to throng before Sony’s tiny 11-inch OLED TVs.” Apparently, the image was far more vivid than any of the LCD or plasmas anywhere near it.

The drawback is that as of now, OLED displays are very expensive, according to the report. Reuters says that other companies developing OLED include Seiko Epson Corp., Canon Inc., Samsung and a joint venture between Toshiba Corp. and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.
