<div class="billede"><img src="pictures/mini-sonyxel1.jpg"></div>Sony believed to postpone large OLED TVs

12 May 2009 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony has previously been very optimistic about the development of large OLED TVs, and with the <a href= http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1240228494><b>XEL-1, which we will review soon</b></a> they prepared for even bigger OLED-TVs. It now appears that Sony is reluctant to develop large OLED-TVs and has postponed to project.<br /><br />Just like Samsung recently announced that they will wait another 5 years to release large OLED-TVs, it seems that Sony sits on the fence as well. Initially – they say – that one has to focus on OLED panels in mobile devices and then take the step to larger panels - like the manufacturers did with the LCD technology back then. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sonyxel1-5l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sonyxel1-5.jpg" alt="Sony XEL-1 OLED" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sony XEL-1 OLED</i></p><br />Darren Ambridge from Sony says: <br />- <i>"We're more focused on big-screen technology at the moment. We really made the XEL-1 just to prove that we could make it."</ I> <br /><br />The same Darren Ambridge guaranteed us that we will see some impressive OLED panels soon, though, <br />- <i>"OLED is certainly still important and you will see some stunning OLED screens in our upcoming Walkman NWZ-x1000 series of media players." </ I> <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sonyxel1-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sonyxel1-1.jpg" alt="Sony XEL-1 OLED" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sony XEL-1 OLED</i></p><br />Sony does seem to send mixed signals about the future of OLED. Rumour has it that Sony might exhibit larger OLED-TVs at IFA 2009 in September 2009. People speculate that Sony will present the successor to the XEL-1 called the XEL-2. <br /><br />More news on the XEL-2 soon.
