The point is, you DON'T KNOW anything about Samsung's plans. That's zero.
Let me quote.
"At the same time, Zoeller confirmed that more details on the company's anticipated Super OLED TV, introduced at CES 2012, will be coming at IFA 2012. We should have a price then for those eyeing one up for Christmas."
I don't see where it says they are "introducing" it there. hmm. "Having a price then" doesn't mean they won't have it BEFORE then.
How about a few quotes about a Summer Olympic release date?
"According to CNET, Samsung has accelerated their plans for the 55-inch OLED-TV and expects to launch the TV in the UK this spring. That launch window will make it available in time for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London this summer.
Update 11:21:00 Samsung has clarified the CNET story and tells that the launch plans are unchanged."
"Samsung’s monster 55in OLED TV, which debuted at the International Consumer Electronics Show in January, will launch in the UK this spring."
Seriously, I can read stuff on the internet and make guesses about things as well as you do, and for everything YOU wish to guess one way I can guess the opposite.
What exactly is your point in these guesses? You Have NO inside information from either LG or Samsung, you're just an internet reader commentor.
And one that can't even stick to one side or the other at that. And sometimes you just post to say "They might do it, or they might not."
Like how about this one?"This would seem to indicate no likely shipment this year, although perhaps Q4.
You're going to count that as a "I was right all along!" post in the future won't you? LOL
You're a hoot sometimes.

If it's not out yet anywhere and is introduced at IFA, it is unlikely to be available anywhere (except perhaps Korea) before the end of the year.
Of course, things don't always happen this way, but generally that's how it works.
Perhaps someone knows of some sooner plan to ship a Samsung OLED, but I don't.
