Screens that are brighter, clearer and perhaps cheaper than LCD’s? Seems as if it could be possible shortly.

DESPITE all the technical advances over the years, the screens on laptop computers, mobile phones and other handheld devices are still pale imitations of the world they seek to portray. Worse, most consume far too much power, are all but unusable in broad daylight, and are too bulky for many applications that engineers have in mind. Later this summer, however, a wholly new type of screen technology, based on the so-called ?organic light-emitting diode? (OLED), will become available. If it lives up to expectations, it will solve many of the shortcomings of present displays, and create possibilities for applications that have yet to be imagined.
