  1. Citing an increasing demand for LCDs alongside the impact of the recent economic recession, Toshiba says its OLED mass production plans are no more. "The plan (for mass-production) is currently frozen," Toshiba Mobile Display spokesman Masahiro Kume told Reuters. "We'll review the production plan again from scratch." It would appear that the company is cutting its losses, which doesn't bode well for the OLED technology.

    Just dont't buy LCD then!
  4. That is indeed too bad. But with higher production of MVA and IPS type LCD panels there isn't as much of a demand for OLED technology. The only two major advantages of OLEDs now are the thin displays it can deliver and a flexible substrate. There isn't much of a need or even awareness of a flexible display, and with LED side lighting in an LCD monitor we can get the thin displays we have been wanting.

    Unfortunately I don't think OLED is really going to be popular, its kind of a niche market.
  5. I really don't need OLED monitor. We want bigger resolution LCD Monitor xD
