Sony Bendable OLED

Sony today used the SID (Society for Information Display) Symposium to unveil what it says is the world's first OLED display to combine both full color and a flexible screen. The 2.5-inch sample takes advantage of the organic technology to display 16.7 million colors -- more than most small LCDs -- but puts it on a plastic layer rather than glass, allowing the display to bend and twist without breaking the image. OLED also delivers a bright 1,000:! contrast ratio for the small screen area and provides near-instant response times for video. This all is achieved with a panel only 0.3mm (0.01 inches) thick at its bulkiest point, Sony boasts.

Though still a prototype at the Symposium and limited to a relatively low QVGA (160x120) resolution, Sony expects that its new OLED will result in more portable and viewable handhelds (such as media players) that can also better withstand real-world use. The company has opted out of predicting when the technology would filter into final products. [via IT Media]
