Flexible gadgets are undeniably sexy – but Japanese electronics giant Sony wasn’t content stopping there. For their newest display, they decided to also throw in ultra-thinness (just 80μm or a bit thinner than a human hair) and the energy-saving power of OLEDs into the mix. The new prototype is so bendy that it can be wrapped around a pencil. From electronic newspapers to LED garments, just think about the applications such a display could be used for!
Asia-Pacific, May 7, 2010 – Sony is bringing the stunning technology that revolutionized consumer displays to its line of professional monitors. The new PVM-740 is the first field display to use an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display panel with Sony’s unique Super Top Emission™ technology to efficiently deliver superb high contrast and vibrant color images, even in adverse lighting conditions.
Say it's true. That I could finally be watching Hulu on a laptop with an OLED screen by next year. Companies have announced plans and showed concepts, but Samsung says we could see a commercial OLED notebook in 2010.
After introducing its X Series laptops yesterday the company told reporters that it would release an OLED notebook towards the end of 2010, perhaps in the third quarter. Lenovo has also mentioned plans to use OLED and Sony has shown a totally futuristic notebook based on OLED panels, but this is the first solid timing we have heard of.
Nobody, least of all Sony, ever said it would be easy to start cranking out OLED TVs. It doesn't help matters to be in a financial crunch.
So it should come as little surprise that according to a report in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal (subscriber access only), losses in Sony's TV division are driving the electronics giant to put a hold on future OLEDs TVs.

Sony shows off its OLED TVs at CES 2007. That's a 27-inch model in the middle; all the others are 11-inch models.
