LG.Philips AMOLED screen

The partnership of LG.Philips LCD claims it has made a significant breakthrough in the realm of AMOLED (active matrix OLED) displays. It is said to have produced the first full-color, flexible AMOLED display using amorphous silicon (a-Si), which is important not so much for the material's capabilities, but its manufacturing benefits -- unlike many OLED screens, the new one can be made in existing TFT-LCD plants. This should reduce the current high production costs. LG.Philips' test screen measures four inches, and displays images at QVGA (320x240) resolution with over 16.7 million colors. There are no (known) plans for any commercial use.
