I would not wait for either technology, if you are happy enough with the display(s) you have now and do not need to replace anything soon. Three years from now, maybe they will be worth comparing.
Both of those new display types may be significantly better than LCD and plasma, but I will want the "crystal" LED technology rather than OLED. The O in OLED is for "organic", and that likely means the panels will have a finite life comparable to how CRT displays get dimmer as they are used (over many hours of course). Non-organic LEDs sound like the ultimate display device to me: Potentially infinite contrast range and viewing angles, the same as CRTs have, without the analog and phosphor limitations.
