Tokyo (Japan) - Sony has announced that it is working on an ultra-thin TV using organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology.

The electronics giant says the new TV, with the tentative model number XEL-1, is the first in the world to run with an OLED display. The technology is not cheap, though. Sony said it expects to price the 11-inch model at 200,000 yen ($1,740). And even at that, Sony would be taking a loss on each unit sold, according to the Associated Press.

In addition to being energy efficient, OLED panels are attractive because they are extremely thin and can offer crisp images with constant frame rates.

"I don't think OLED TVs will replace LCD TVs overnight, but I do believe this is a type of technology with very high potential, something that will come after LCD TVs," said Sony Deputy President Katsumi Ihara at a news conference, reports the AP.

Bogey would argue with Eskimos that Sony's 2 lb bag of ice is superior to free ice.

So... You're an uninformed shopper that apparently took a LONG time and many ill-considered purchases to come to this conclusion? And this is SONY'S fault?

Funny... Every single piece of Sony equipment I own (and there are many) works with everything else and still, well, WORKS regardless of age. I even pulled out a long-forgotten Sony Walkman I've had for over 20years, cleaned out the gook from the exploded battery in the battery compartment, popped in a tape, and it worked fine. The only piece of Sony equipment that I ever had to discard was a Discman that my then-girlfriend dropped for me (onto pavement), and ever after the headphone jack wouldn't work.

Oh, and just so we know, is EVERY format war Sony's fault?

I don't get it... Bob?
It was a precursor to Windows 95. It was meant to bring Windows 3.1 into a super-friendly intuitive GUI. It totally sucked and Microsoft buried everything that had to do with it...

...except for that goddamned paperclip...

...and the head of the project... who Bill Gates married.
