    Flexible OLED Screen

    A Flexible Cell Phone Screen (OLED)



    Samsung has been working to deliver flexible displays for cellphones that will be significantly thinner than current LCD screens and allow for new form factors. But a big question for electronics makers will be how sturdy are these flexible displays? There’s only one way to answer that question and that’s with a hammer.

    A video clips shows what happens when you pound a flexible, 2.8-inch display that is about 20 micrometers thick. And the answer is nothing. There’s not a scratch on the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display. In comparison, an LCD screen shatters when it is hit.

    Apple?

    Apple does whats good for them, not whats good for their customers. They need to control EVERYTHING, problem is, Samsung will neverever dance to their music.

    I can't really see OLED being all that much a + for cell phones. Most Smartphones will have a body (guts) below the screen anyway to make use of the form factor anyway.

    IDK they may have a place in the Flip Phone market I guess.

    Theirown OLED? or paying Samsung or Sony to use the technology? I think both those companies have version of this.

    LG and Philips too?:

    Excluding some of the large electronics brands (Samsung, LG, Sony, etc), smartphones like Nokia, HTC, BB, Apple etc have to buy a lot more of the technology that make up the devices. Take for example processors like Qualcomm's 1GHz snapdragon processor.

    The OLED tech cost to much. When ever they start putting it on cell phone, get ready for a big price jump. The Iphone uses a screen similar to it but not quit the screen it should have had. The price apple charges for it, they should have spent the money to put the OLED on it. I hope RIM looks into to this as a next gen blackberry screens.
