Let’s just put the facts on the table and we’ll let y’all speculate away…
In January, Apple announced a deal in which it will spend $500 million over the next 5 years on LG displays. The money was a pre-payment.
As you probably know, Apple hasn’t released any OLED MacBook Pro goodness upon the world yet, though we’d imagine one would sell pretty well to high-enders.
This week, however, LG announced their new 15-inch OLED display. So, we do know that a 15-inch OLED display from LG exists. These aren’t going to hit the streets until November and judging by the Sony 11" OLED TV’s $2500 price tage, they’ll be expensive. And those streets are Korean streets. Western shores aren’t going to see these things until 2010.
On the other hand, Microsoft has an OLED ZuneHD coming out this month for $200 so there might be some price flexibility. (Some think Apple’s high end iPod Touches may also see some new OLED screens as well)
Speaking of flexibility, OLED screens are semi-flexible, allowing them to be made into curved surfaces.
