Super OLED TV | Samsung
OLED TVs, whether produced by Samsung, LG, or Sony, have been the perpetual darling of consumer electronics trade shows, however they have yet to make the leap from the exhibition floor to retail shelf space.
The Associated Press has the first word on pricing for Samsung's 55-inch OLED HDTV and it's going to be a steep hill for most of us to climb: $9,000.
Samsung is considering restructuring its LCD flat panel production arm in response to weak demand and increasing competition from cheaper Chinese firms.
DuPont has received $920,000 in state funding from Delaware to build a new facility for investigating low-cost production of OLED TVs. The company just announced that it has made $20 million in licensing out its production technology.
As per usual, Samsung announced a boatload of TVs during its press conference earlier in the week, so we hit the floor to pull out the highlights. The most stunning display was certainly the 55-inch OLED prototype, which we heard should be on sale by the 2nd half of the year.
