Samsung One-Ups Sony With 31-Inch OLED TV
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.
