    Sony looks set to win the race to become the first company to release an OLED television with its SonyDrive XEL-1 display. OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode, and such displays do not require a backlight to function, unlike standard LCD displays – as well as boasting superior contrast ratios such as the 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio of the XEL-1. Sony’s 11-inch TV will offer a 960 x 540 pixel resolution, a digital tuner, 2 x 1W speakers and HDMI, USB and Ethernet ports. It’s dimensions come to 287 x 140 x 253mm, weighing in at 2kg. The XEL-1 will hit be available from 1st December this year with a price tag of about $1,740 - which works at at $160 per inch of OLED. Perhaps a little expensive for the Christmas wish list?

    THIS IS EFFING AMAZING:eek::eek::eek:

    Im shocked at the price though I really thought it would be more higher than that for the first ever OLED screen to be released. Especially with it coming from Sony:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    They are always overpriced compared to most other companies. I guess OLED isnt quite as expensive as i was afraid of.

    I wouldnt be surprised if this 11 inch screen costs less than $1000 by Christmas 2008:cool::cool:

    Come 2010 this sould be very widespread and by then hopefully there will be a winner the the HD-DVD-Blu-Ray battle:cool::cool: (go HD-DVD:cool::cool:)
