I think the use cases for laptops and tablets are very different. There are very few people who are going to use their tablet for 8 hours a day on a single application (eg excel). It will be...

There are good reasons why none of the OLED vendors are yet talking about using OLED's for computer monitors or laptop displays. It will happen eventually but the material lifetimes arent there yet.

I think it is safe to say that the either the writer of the Korean article or Google Translation is very wrong. The guy who runs OLED-Info never should have put that article up with that headline.

No, you need to have new features which are able to command a premium in the high-end segment. The masses simply help fill the fabs. As of right now, 4K is helping the LCD vendors make some...

FWIW, I do expect LG to show more flat screen OLED's at CES. The question is when they might get released. If they are Gen 3 models, we probably wont see them until the 2nd half of 2015.

That isnt close to correct. Coal is at 39% and NG is at 27% with the rest nuclear and renewables.

The power consumption numbers are different enough that it is very unlikely that it is the same panel.

Some sales data on curved vs. non-curved.

I believe the Samsung HU8550 (flat) and the HU8700 are identical except for the curve. The HU8700 costs $500 more than the HU8550 on Amazon ($3800 vs...
