Sony shows OLED mobile electronics prototypes

At CEATEC, Sony is showing off three portable consumer electronics prototype products that use its flexible OLED technology. Conspicuously missing was an OLED TV from the electronics giant, such as its 21-inch OLED prototype shown off earlier in the year. The non-functioning VAIO notebook Sony did showcase was behind a Plexiglas case and was not powered on. It also was seen before, and sports a 0.2mm thick flexible screen that covers both the screen and keyboard area.

New, previously unseen prototypes include an e-book reader using a fixed OLED screen, as well as a Walkman-branded digital multimedia player that is built into a wristwatch-like form factor. Neither of this was operational either, suggesting Sony still has some time before it anticipates any of these translating to real-world products. [via Crave]

    All show, no go.

    OLEDs are supposed to be incredibly inexpensive to manufacture, reduce power consumption, and reduce weight. A perfect match for current product requirements. So where are they?
