40" and larger OLED TVs in 2009!
 
"Sumitomo Chemical said that in 2009, it plans to launch the production and sales of large-screen OLED display panels for use in televisions of 40 inches or larger."
I can hardly wait to see these!

That will be great as the Sony is too small to even assess picture quality.

This is the future, the question is expect to pay a premium ie $25,000 like when the first Plasm a came out seven years ago!

This mean Costco will be selling them in five years from now at $2,000 for a 60i, I love technology.

I saw 50" prototypes a few weeks back for a company I'm probably not safe in naming. These units look stunning, but I was unable to ascertain if they had motion issues or the like. I'm still thinking they will initially be massive sticker shock items.

Are they as thin as the 9" Sony? Since the picture was so small on the Sony, I was more impressed with the thickness.

I know Samsung has been showing off a 31" prototype at CES and such: http://gizmodo.com/342912/samsungs-3...t-thinnest-yet
They have even had a 40" prototype since at least as far back as 2005: http://www.dimagemaker.com/article.php?articleID=308
I think the biggest technical problem to date with the prototypes has been screen longevity.
Hmm. A 50" proto? OK, I am stumped. Please don't keep us in suspense any longer!
