My feel of the industry is more corporate management, strategic, investor relations and financial aspects. I hardly talk to the people on the ground. But you need people on the ground to feedback whether plasma P5 or LCD 10G is a good idea, or 3D/ 4K make sense or not.
From skeptic to "quantum leap", rogo represent the industry's sentiment towards OLED pretty well AFAIK
. He is a pretty good representation how perceptions have changed. So i do follow his perception closely. Sammy made a big bet, when perceptions were unfavorable, and looks like bearing fruit.

" April 27 (Bloomberg) -- Samsung Electronics Co. overtook Nokia Oyj as the world’s biggest vendor of mobile-phones last quarter, ending the Finnish company’s 14-year run as the global industry leader, according to researcher Strategy Analytics.
Samsung shipped 93.5 million handsets in the first quarter, 36 percent more than a year earlier, and compared with 82.7 million for second-ranked Nokia, Strategy Analytics said in an e-mailed statement today. It’s the first time the Suwon, South Korea-based company led in phone shipments, the Boston-based researcher said.
Demand for Galaxy smartphones helped Samsung today post first-quarter net income of 5.05 trillion won ($4.5 billion), beating analysts’ estimates. Nokia last week reported a 1.34 billion euros ($1.8 billion) first-quarter operating loss after handset sales slumped."
