Thin is in when it comes to TVs. Flat-panel sets that can be wall-mounted, with the help of falling prices, are flying off shelves. Now Sony is about to go one step further in the slimming of televisions.
According to the Associated Press, Sony will begin selling an 11-inch TV that incorporates organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen technology by the end of 2007. At a depth of .12 inches, or 3 millimeters, these TVs give new meaning to flat panels.
Sony previewed its OLED technology with 1080p high definition at this year’s International CES in January, where it boasted 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio in a 27-inch prototype.
No pricing details have been disclosed, but for people looking for an incredibly thin, incredibly bright display in a small TV, Sony’s 11-inch OLED could be an early pick for gadget lovers come holiday time.
