The CES 2009 will be kicking off in a couple of weeks and of course the first promises from companies already surface with what cool electronics they will try to dazzle us.
In an interview on WhatHiFi (via OLED-Info) Samsung's HS Kim, Vice President in charge of Flat Panel Development said that Samsung might show a larger OLED TV at the CES 2009 (previously the interview said 50 inch, but the statement was updated).
Unless Samsung plans to sell the 50 inch OLED TV in 2009, they actually can leave that panel in their Korean headquarters. In 2005 Samsung already showed a 40 inch OLED TV. Kim correctly sees that the problem is not in the size of OLED they can make, but the price. He said that the price of the 50 inch OLED TV would be 10x that of current models.
So Samsung will continue to focus on developing better Plasma and LCD HDTVs.
I am still full of hopes that CES 2009 will show more innovative products than just bigger OLED panels we cannot buy anytime soon. Message to OLED makers: If you plan to show an OLED TV, keep it in your lab unless you plan to sell it in 2009.
