Not how you’d normally expect to utilise 15 feet of OLED’s, but the development boys & girls at GE Global Research have created the first ever (at probably last) OLED christmas tree. Who knows, maybe next year they’ll make OLED wrapping paper?
Today at the FPD International Show in Yokohama, Samsung revealed a very interesting concept mobile phone. The standard looking phone, opens like a book to reveal a large colour display, using it’s AMOLED (Active Matrix OLED). Unfortunately this is still a concept, so no details on price or release date for availability.
Could this be the future of eBooks? I think so… I cannot help but be reminded of the Readius by Polymer Vision, while that device uses a 5″ flexible greyscale e-Ink display, and Samsung’s approach is more akin to using a book, they both tackle the same problem of carrying around a large display in your pocket. Sony are also developing a flexible OLED display.
