Default Sony selling OLED sets @ Sony Style

Yep, the new sony XEL-1 is an 11" OLED display and available near you for the low price of $2,499.99. The panel itself is only 3 mm thick and boasts 1 million to one contrast.

I don't think any of us will be running to buy one for this price, but it's nice to see the technology already on the market. OLED has some distinct advantages over LCD and Plasma, but also has it's own problems. These displays have been used in cell phones for a while but this is one of the first actual TV sets to utilize the technology.

I'm going to go check one out either today or tomorrow at my local Sony Style store just for S&G's, I'll post back once I get my eyes on it!
