    What do you think?

    Taken from Wikepedia: "An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a thin-film light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive layer is an organic compound. These devices promise to be much less costly to fabricate than traditional LEDs. When the emissive electroluminescent layer is polymeric, varying amounts of OLEDs can be deposited in arrays on a screen using simple "printing" methods to create a graphical colour display, for use as television screens, computer displays, portable system screens, and in advertising and information board applications. OLED may also be used in lighting devices. OLEDs are available as distributed sources while the inorganic LEDs are point sources of light. Prior to standardization, OLED technology was also referred to as OEL or Organic Electro-Luminescence.

    One of the great benefits of an OLED display over the traditional LCD displays is that OLEDs do not require a backlight to function. This means that they draw far less power, can last longer on the same battery charge, and be of use with small portable devices which have mostly used monochrome low-resolution displays to conserve power."

    Also, "But by 2010, display technology analyst Paul Semenza of ISuppli forecasts, factories will be churning out 289 million active-matrix OLED displays annually. He estimates about 88 percent of those will end up in mobile phones.

    OLED displays will crop up in several other places, too: In certain high-end 2005-model-year cars (such as Aston Martin's DB9), the dashboard offers an active-matrix color OLED information display. A few Pioneer car stereos are available that already use monochrome OLED displays.

    And OLED televisions are coming, says Jim Sandufski, Samsung's vice president of marketing for visual displays; but don't start salivating yet. Sandufski says that Samsung, which showed off a prototype 21-inch display in January at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, is several years away from mass-producing OLED TVs."
