LG Display to offer 55-inch OLED TV in 2012 Display maker bets on large-sized OLED.
LG Display chief executive Kwon Young-soo revealed that the company does not want to concentrate completely on small to medium sized AMOLED displays intended for use with mobile handsets or tablet PCs, and instead will look to bring large-sized OLED TVs to the market.

"Instead of investing in OLED displays for mobile applications, the company will now put all its efforts into large screen sizes for TVs," Kwon said. "LG-Display will launch a 55-inch OLED TV by the second half next year."

Initial volume will only be in the tens of thousands of units due to limitations of production facilities, with mass production expansion eyed shortly afterwards.

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this year, LG Display showed off a 31-inch OLED 3D display that gained considerable attention. OLED promises sublime picture quality and low-power consumption.

And the price will be WAY too much for my wallet.

I wonder how many supercars you could buy for the cost of one of these things. I also can't help but wonder what is the point of an OLED that you don't sit close to.

I will look at their 3D OLED offerings come 2012 but it would need to be at least 50".

So, if next year is the start I guess that means we're about 5yrs off of affordable ones then?

Unless we get yet another water-down LED/OLED version of the technology, I would say at least 3 years for the reference-level versions at larger sizes we are already used to.
