Panasonic and Sumitomo Chemical are teaming up to start production of the 40+ inch displays by fiscal year 2010, that’s in the next few months to the rest of us. Sony launched their OLED XEL-1 about 2 years ago to much fanfare but the prices were just too high. Sony has since withdrawn from the OLED game.
It takes me back to when I first started seeing the $15,000+ plasma display that had no warranty and now you can get the same thing for under $1,000. Sure that was 12+ years ago but still. People expect to be able to afford stuff.
