The Daily Yomiuri Online recently revealed that Sony has given up on their OLED TV development, at least in the consumer market. So unless you’re a corporate client, you too can probably give up on the idea of the tech giant debuting the XEL-2 any time soon.

Manufactured and released back in 2008, Sony’s XEL-1, the world’s first OLED TV, was an 11” display of but 3mm thickness. Basically it looked like the future.
