If you want to experience the joys (and pains) of an AMOLED phone, you'd better place your order now. OLED-DISPLAY reports that Samsung's production demand for the Galaxy S will strangle the supply of the next-gen displays for everyone else.

HTC has been forced to replace the AMOLED displays on the Incredible, Desire and Nexus One with Super TFT LCD displays. These high-end LCDs will provide a better display than traditional LCDs, but they are still a step down from AMOLED in everything but battery life and sun performance.

This OLED display drought could last until July of 2011, when Samsung opens their new OLED production facility. HTC may still be able to trickle out a supply of AMOLED-packing phones, and they claim that the TFT screens are just as good. Denial much?
