Sony OLED XEL-1 goes wireless, but still small

When the diminutives Sony OLED XEL-1 hit US stores early this year, it was selling for $2,500. I couldn’t imagine one would spend $227 per inch for an 11-inch screen. Yes, it was the first consumer OLED to hit production, which has a 100k:1 contrast ratio and an extremely thin profile of 3mm but honestly, it wasn’t about the price, it’s just too darn small.

Sony OLED TV – its .3mm thick, that’s 10 times thinner than the XEL-1

Sony OLED TV – its .3mm thick, that’s 10 times thinner than the XEL-1

If the 11-inch XEL-1 was too thick for you at 3mm for an OLED screen, Sony has a new on up their sleeve that manages to almost be more anorexic than paper. For reference, and average sheet of paper is roughly .1mm thick, so stack three sheets together, push down on it to remove an extraneous space, and then you’ve got yourself the thickness of one of these displays.

Sony and Panasonic have announced a collaboration to develop large panel OLEDs for TV, pushing the low-power technology as a potential replacement for LCD and plasma. The deal will see the two firms work together on next-generation organic EL panels and modules, using printing processes that are more efficient than existing manufacturing techniques. If all goes to plan, meanwhile, Sony and Panasonic's partnership may only be the first step.

Sony axes OLED TV business

Sony has axed its home OLED TV plans, ceasing production of domestic-focused sets using the organic light-emitting diode technology, and focusing on LCD panels moving forward. The news - coming as both Samsung and LG prepare to unveil OLED HDTVs at CES 2012 this week - is the latest stage in Sony's huge overhaul of its ailing home entertainment business, Yomiuri reports, short-comings of which are expected to contribute to $1.15bn in losses in the most recent financial quarter.

LG Display to Showcase 31-Inch OLED TV at IFA 2010

LG Display to Showcase 31-Inch OLED TV at IFA 2010

Despite the fact that OLED technology in TVs is ridiculously expensive right now, that doesn't seem to want to stop companies from manufacturing them. After all, they are a great showcase of the technology. And, if anything else, they're fantastic to stare at. But LG's looking to go big this year at the IFA show, set to kick off next month. They're apparently going to bring the largest OLED TV to market (outside of the one Samsung showed off, that was also 31-inches, at CES a couple of years ago -- but that they never released for customer purchase), and they plan on showing it off at this year's trade show.

LG 15-inch OLED TV Planned for September Launch

LG 15-inch OLED TV Planned for September Launch

On Sunday, LG announced that they are going ahead and releasing their previously planned 15-inch AMOLED television, and sooner than we could have hoped. If September wasn't big enough already, LG wants to wiggle in and make sure that you get to watch "your Zune HD" via a great looking, and brilliant display. But, are our wallets ready for another OLED tv? If LG can officially ship this thing, then we'd like to hope so.
