Sony will begin selling its 11-inch OLED TV on December 1, according to the company's Japanese press release. This will be the world's first OLED TV, Sony claimed.

The latest OLED TV (XEL-1), which weighs two kilograms and is about 3mm thin, features a resolution of 940×540 and contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, stated Sony. The company will offer the 11-inch TV at 200,000 yen (US$1,737).

The XEL-1 will be exhibited at the Sony exhibition booth at Ceatec Japan 2007 starting from October 2.

OLED technology enjoys several advantages over LCD technology. OLED is self-luminous, which means there is no need for backlighting. The technology also has excellent color reproduction, fast response time and consumes low power, said Sony.

Sony first demonstrated its 11-inch TVs incorporating OLED technology at CES 2007 in Las Vegas (January 8-11).

No kidding. I got my 42" plasma HD for $4-500 (at least) less. Is OLED really THAT good?

Essentially, yes. In terms of power consumption, brightness, contrast ratio, and refresh rate OLED displays are significantly better than LCD displays. However, there are some legitimate concerns over the relative fragility and viewing hours of OLED technology.

Also consider that any first generation product will be excessively costly until mass production begins and demand rises.

Agreed, But it is steps forward. The specs of a display that is 3mm think and contrast that is 10 times greater than any LCD out there is impressive. In time it will go down. But for the price to go down it has to come out 1st.

It will also improve upon many of its weaknesses down the road assuming that a better technology does not eclipse it before OLED enters the mainstream.

Agreed. Similar to the way when Plasma was 1st released they stated it would be good for about 7 years and now they are coming out with new ones lasting 50 years.
