The Sony diet: eat your OLEDs and loose weight

Original Post from April 17th 2008.

It seems Sony is still the only company really pushing OLED in larger sizes commercially, with their "XEL-1" TV product that I've covered previously.

But here are some enticing photos of very thin Sony OLED displays from the Display show in Japan:
(Ignore the machine translated English from Japan as it won't tell you much except dimensions).

Front-view of 11" OLED, nice dark blacks that make the bezel harder to see.

Side image of the same, showing off-it's 0.3mm thin-ness.

They also showed a 3.5" diagonal display, only 0.2mm thick:

and it's side view:

I'm looking forward for availability to go up, prices to come down and to see these types of displays in personal devices sometime.
