Sony Shows Off A 0.3 mm OLED Display, 27-Inch OLED TV Hitting Shelves Soon
Sony's CEO Howard Stringer did his best to impress at D6 yesterday, showing off another Sony OLED prototype, this one only 0.3 mm thin! We can't really find anything in the way of specs at the moment, but Engadget HD speculates that this could be the 960x540 pixel display Sony showcased last month which was also 0.3 mm thin. Sony also said that they'll be introducing their 27-inch OLED display to the mass market soon, although only those with the fattest of fat wallets will be able to afford one. We could only imaging given the $2500 price tag of the XEL-1.
Stringer also mentioned a few other interesting nuggets yesterday, saying that while Sony's LCD growth has been great, the technology is bound to fall victim to OLED in the future. While alot of people buy LCD's for their brightness, OLED's are even brighter. Right now OLED is the "perfect television companion", said Stringer.
He also believes that while Blu-ray may eventually fall victim to digital distribution, it'll be around for at least another 10 years before broadband video quality equals up to the HD disc format. And even then the Playstation Network is in place which was he believes was key in destroying the previously competing HD DVD format.
