I can't speak too much to pricing as I'm not sure we're comparing apples to oranges on vendors here, but the market for $6000 TVs vs. $8000 TVs is on the order of 5-10x larger.

Of course, this pricing is no death knell. It does suggest, however, a much, much lower volume target for 2015 than we'd be led to believe/hoping for.

I don't for a second buy into the theory that...

Whatever most people think the market is for 65-inch $6000 TVs, I suggest your guesstimate is likely significantly above the actual market size.

Even in the case of Samsung, the flat one at $4000...

That's actually not a very accurate picture. You can state it over and over if you'd like, but it's nowhere near that simple.

Again, that's a prototype. It's capped at 25mph so it can avoid having modern safety features installed. It can't reasonably be used as an urban taxi even if it were legally allowed to be one. That...

I'd much rather take that "risk" than buy an orphan product for more than $10K. My last 4 televisions combined were about $10K.

At $20K there aren't many beholders. The worldwide market for $20K TVs is probably under 10,000 units annually. It's not going to ever be 100K units (in constantly dollars).

That's a mobile phone/tablet investment. Only. Entirely. Completely.

It has nothing to do with "printing". It's the same method of OLED mfg. they've been using since the beginning.

Right, it would be. But that's all the more reason to become the "OLED brand" as quickly and as deeply as possible.
