Standard HD Plasmas and LCD...already a tech toy of the past?

Sony does it again! If we thought for one second that the current lines of plasmas and LCD's are sleek and sharp enough, think again! OLED technology is the future of high def!

Recently in Tokyo, Sony released the prototype of the all new 11 inch OLED screen. When it comes to streamline design and sleekness, these new monitors clearly take the cake. What makes these new monitors even more attractive how thin they are and the option that they come in both white and black. Aside from the aesthetics, these screens also are better on energey and do not require a backlight, which on today's flat screens eventually will die out after 60,000 viewing hours.

What does this mean? We could be seeing future computer monitors, screens in laptop computers, all use this new OLED technology. Although we currently see these OLED's in 2.5" dimensions in digital cameras, the brige to large screens is there.

Who is going to the be prime customer? The people who simply don't care about the price tag. These are going to be expensive! So shine that piggy bank off and start saving!

Wow! Those look real cool! I'm not suprised at all that technology has improved even more since the HDTVs. In some ways it's almost discouraging to purhcase these awesome new tvs and other high tech devices knowing that an even more technologically advanced one will be introduced soon after.

Technology is always improving, and new products just keep getting smaller and thinner and smarter. It’s great that electronics companies are becoming so innovative, and they entice customers through personalization by offering their products in various colors. Of course, as usual, once a “new” technology becomes more popular and more affordable (i.e. flat screen monitors and TVs), a newer technology will emerge, but it is still interesting to see what’s coming next!
