The OLED technology opens up a whole new world of possibilities. One is bendable and rollable OLED panels that Samsung plans to introduce in 2013 or 2014.

Kim mentioned that Samsung has developed a OLED prototype that resembles a piece of paper. This panel is rollable and has an integrated touchscreen that lets you surf the content, just like if it was a newspaper in print form.
