Panasonic Denies 37-Inch OLED TV Rumors: We Don't Believe Them For A Second

110271_f520(2).jpgDespite news reports over in Japan earlier this week that said Panasonic was ready to crank out 37-inch OLED displays en masse within the next three years, Panasonic has blatantly denied the rumors. According to Tech-On, Panasonic told them, "We are currently advancing research and development in view of OLED production at IPS Alpha's Himeji Plant for the future, but nothing specific has yet been decided on the commercialization of our OLED TV at the moment." A typical response to a rumor from a publicly traded company whose product announcements are timed in such a way to benefit their investors, but not necessarily meaning much. The company's President Fumio Otsubo said back in January that OLED TV's wouldn't really begin penetrated the TV market until 2015, but no matter what Panasonic says, we don't believe for a second that this rumor isn't true especially when competitors such as Sony and Samsung have big plans for their OLED TV businesses in the next couple of years. Oh, and remember that interview with Panny's Toshihiro Sakamoto back in January? Didn't he put the release year at somewhere around 2012?
