LG gave the UK pricing for the 65" as 5999 pounds and the 77" as 19999 pounds at the end of June. So no, I dont think that this is old thinking. They were clearly planning on extracting a...

I dont think many are projecting fafrd's $10,000 starting price.

Personally, I think an opening street price of $15,000 is likely and would be very surprised at anything below $13,000. LG will...

The same press release mentions the 65EC9700 which is the model number that we all expect for the US (and is listed on sites for pre-order). That would seem to imply that 77EG9700 will also be the...

Great catch. The press release does list the model number as 77EG9700. Perhaps there will be some substantial differences between the 65" model and the 77" model that will attempt to justify the...

A dozen? I think I would wallpaper my house at that price :-).

We all make some small errors sometimes, I was only off by a factor of a 1000 (12 million Won).

The 12,000 Won price in Korea is for the 65" model. They started taking preorders for that model. I dont believe that they have released pricing for the 77" model in South Korea. It looks like LG...

I dont think a launch price tells you much on the 77" model. IMO, it is entirely possible that LG will simply be charging an early adopter premium to a price insensitive portion of the market. I do...

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.

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.
