Samsung touts AMOLED laptop conceptBy Jose Vilches
Samsung's OLED TVs are on their way for 2009, but the company has given us even more reason to get all smitten over the technology courtesy of their ultra-thin AMOLED notebook prototype. The system uses a 12-inch AMOLED (active matrix organic light-emitting diode) display that would match the resolution of a same-size LCD at 1280x768 but produce a much better picture.
The screen's lack of any need for a backlight also allows for an extremely thin display. On top of that the prototype has a touch sensitive keypad too, making it far thinner than the world's current record holder, the MacBook Air. I doubt this 12.1-inch beauty will hit the market anytime soon - if at all - but Samsung has already said they are planning to offer 14- and 15-inch OLED-based laptops as soon as 2009.
