Sony discontinues their consumer OLEDs
We roll up hopes for our floppy tellies!
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.

Or more specifically a future that needed to triple in size before any of us would consider playing our favourite DVDs on it!

Sony discontinued domestic consumer OLED sales back in 2010, but continued exporting to the States and Europe.

Rollable TV enthusiasts need not fret however, as manufactures LG and Samsung still have a relatively robust OLED range...
For now...
