OLEDs still seem like a far off technology that's presently really expensive – but the same can be said for many emerging and fancy pieces of tech.
As expensive as OLEDs are right now, Samsung seems to think that it'll be able to sell a consumer laptop with the display technology by the end of 2010.
"Samsung is the largest OLED screen manufacturer. And as soon as it's available commercially for laptops we will adopt it," said Kyu Uhm, head of worldwide sales and marketing for Samsung's Computing Division, according to a TechRadar story. Uhm later added that we could see the product "Probably sometime Q3 next year."
We can only dream that it'll look something like this 12.1-inch 1280x768 AMOLED prototype in the image above (from OLED-info).
The laptop doesn't look too bad either... ;)
remember when they were saying to get into IT because the pay was great?
Out sector is just crap due to the fucking H1Bs, and foreign outsourcing. I swear, if I have to explain to one more contractor from India how to do his job, while he goes "hello? What?" a fucking thousand times, I'm going to... quietly cry in the corner of my cube when nobody's looking.
They look very nice, but I doubt you'll be able to type well on it, because you have almost no response from the keyboard, save some tap sound they could implement.
Then there's the accidental touching of the keyboard...
