Samsung One-Ups Sony With 31-Inch OLED TV

Samsung One Ups Sony with 31 Inch and 14 Inch OLEDs
Things have been awfully quiet on the OLED front as of late. The last major development we reported was that Sony's ultra-thin (and ultra-expensive) organic panel was coming to the US. That was the first bit of OLED news we had for you since said panels were unveiled several months ago. Thankfully, CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is just around the corner, and Samsung aims to let us know that this technology isn't dead yet.

OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) screens use electroluminescent organic material to produce images, instead of the liquid crystal and back-light combination found in traditional LCDs. This gives OLEDs several advantages, including lower power and higher contrast and brightness.

At CES, Samsung is expected to show off a 31-inch prototype along with a 14-incher that will go in to production in 2008. This bests Sony's 27-inch prototype and 11-inch production unit. But don't expect to see that 14-inch screen in a laptop anytime soon, as it's expected to hit the market to the tune of roughly $3,000.
