Samsung showcases 31 inch OLED TV
OLED TV’s are the future and Laser TV’s are the distant future. Samsung showcased its 31 inch OLED prototype at Cebit 2008. OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) offer a number of advantages over LCD TV’s like a higher contrast ratio, provide better viewing angles, consume less power and are really slim. Unfortunately OLED TV’s are very expensive to manufacture for now as the 11 inch Sony XEL-1 sells for $2500 which is around $222 per inch. Samsung did not release any specifications or release dates but there are rumors that the OLED TV might hit markets next year with a 100,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.1 ms response time with a life of 35,000 hours.
