SonyXEL-1 super-slim Tv as thick as a coin
Sony Corp. on Monday unveiled the first flat-screen television using organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology, a display method more common in laptops and mobile phones.
The XEL-1 television, which will go on sale on Dec. 1, has a display thickness of just three millimetres, a compactness made possible because OLEDs are self-luminescent and do not require a backlight.
The Sony XEL-1 is relatively small for a television by today’s big-screen standards; it has an 11-inch display screen. It is also expensive, with a price tag of 200,000 yen, or $1,735.
