Only in the weird world of AVS was/is this a selling point.

15 lbs is a selling point. 44 vs. 72? Still requires elaborate planning to wall mount.

I doubt anywhere near 2% of the world's tablets are being sold with OLEDs. Samsung has about 14% of the world's tablet sales and really there's no evidence even 1 in 10 of their sales are the OLED...

Listen, if LG wants to sell $6300 90" OLEDs, no one is going to object!

The market size at 90" is pretty small, however. At $30-40K, it's not even 1/10th as large.

Is there a sense of what their smartphone capacity is?

Also, do we know if anyone is using their smartphone panels in existing models and which models?

The fantasy that this is a huge market for 100" TVs if only they'd be priced "reasonably" is just that: A fantasy.

Barth put it well.

There is no business focusing on that niche without also...

Fafrd, this isn't LCD. LCD is laid down as pixels on the substrate and to "mix sizes" would be more logistically challenging.

Because the OLED vapor deposition step isn't pixel based, however,...
