It's not a bad thing, except for the fact that the only two commercially available OLEDs are not printed and therefore cannot see their production scaled up. And Sony has no OLED production facility of any kind*, even in the planning stage. So when they "announce" the sale of something for next year, we should be wary of that. It's certainly true that they are making progress. I believe they will be well served to scrap their progress and start over soon.
Hopefully, Panasonic is doing something with their soon to be mothballed factories.
Sony is working with Panasonic. Is it possible that they will produce the panels for Sony (perhaps not the TV)?
