Samsung's OLED: Blowin' in the Wind

Companies can't seem to stop trying to outdo themselves in the wackiest of ways. We've seen transparent screens and flexible screens. Big screens and tiny screens.

Samsung was showing off once again at the FPD International 2008 show. Their exhibit caused quite a stir, a big enough stir to create a breeze.  And that breeze was enough to cause their new 4-inch 0.05mm OLED to literally flap in it.

The specs are incredible.

The screen has 480 x 272 pixel resolution, 100,000:1 contrast ratio, and 200cd/m2 brightness.

They also showed their 40-inch OLED TV with 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.

I like the major players are all trying to outdo each other. We can only benefit as they try to bring better and more interesting products to the market. Sit back and enjoy the show. -Leslie Shapiro
