A deal with Kodak isn't the only LG OLED rumor around today; according to Australian site Smarthouse, LG will be providing Apple with a whole range of OLED displays for use in their desktop, media device and portable device ranges.

LG's 1,000,000:1 contrast HDTV isn't the only LCD wonder they're planning to demonstrate at CES next week.

LG has announced a prototype of a LCD panel that is illuminated by sunlight instead of the backlight unit when used in outdoors.

The International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) 2008 kicked off in Korea yesterday, and both Samsung and LG Display brought along their latest OLED-based displays for a little screen-quality sparring. LG tried valiantly, with their 19-inch OLED panel, but Samsung's smaller, 14-inch panel fought back with the lower power-requirements of AMOLED while their larger 31-inch full-HD panel won the war of inches.
