Sony 11-inch OLED TV

Sony announced at today's Tokyo Big Light expo that it would launch some of the first ever productiton OLED displays this year. Although exhibited before as a concept display, the 11-inch set will be a reality for 2007 and should carry with it all the benefits of the organic display, including an exceptionally thin 3mm (0.11 inches) body, an unparalleled 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and a color gamut higher than 100% of the NTSC range. Video input is handled through a single HDMI output as well as co-ax for antennas or cable.

The company wasn't yet ready to set a specific launch date or price for the OLED screen, which also goes without a name; however, it promises a release by the end of the year and may ship the ultra-thin TV beyond its Japanese home. [via Impress]
