OLED TVs to Start Shipping by the End of 2012, According to NPD DisplaySearch

Santa Clara, Calif., November 5, 2012—Despite high expectations set by manufacturers Samsung and LG Electronics for the entry of OLED (organic light emitting diode) displays into the TV market in 2012, these sets will likely only be available in small volumes by the end of this year.

With 55" OLED TV demonstrations stealing the show at CES in January 2012, commercial products were expected in time for the Olympics in August. But as the year progressed, the possibility of commercialization in 2012 was called into question, due to mass production challenges and expected high retail prices. In September, OLED TVs were once again demonstrated at IFA in Berlin, and even at some local retailers, but were still not commercially available.
