For quite a bit of time now we have been hearing how OLED technology is going to change the TV industry.  A couple really small OLEDs have been released to date, but in today’s big-screen economy, 20-inch OLEDs are just not going to cut it.  Earlier reports had larger panel OELDs showing up by year's end.  Now Sony has announced that due to losses in its TV division, production of OLEDs will be delayed.

OLED, or organic light emitting diode was hailed as the technology that was going to put Sony back on top.  Recently, Samsung has squashed Sony's market share as they release their LED technology flat panel TVs.  Unfortunately, as Sony is slow to production, other companies are taking advantage of moving forward with OLED production.

While Sony is pushing an 11-inch OLED, LG is coming out with a 15-inch by year's end and Samsung debuted a 31-inch OELD at this year's CES.  Sony has promised that they have been working on a 27-inch OLED.  However, with the ability to get a cheap LCD or Plasma flat panel at twice the size, I struggle to see OLED technology getting a strong foothold in the market.
