â€œA 55-inch AMOLED TV will be priced at $8,000 in 2012, more than twice the $3,700 average expense for an equivalent LCD TV,â€ said Jakhanwal. â€œAnd although AMOLEDs deliver a dramatically superior viewing experience compared to LCDs, consumers are unlikely to buy large quantities of AMOLEDs until their prices fall to within a 20 percent premium of comparable LCD TVs.â€
$8000.00? More like $16,000.00. AMOLED like LCOS has been tried and abandoned by pretty much everybody. No arguments that it's wonderful tech but the cost is just too prohibative.
I think Sony still has a few 11" OLEDs kicking around at the bargain price of $2500.00.
