OLED displays to debut in high-end cars

Dan Wu

2006 Corvette Z06It's going to be a few more years before you have an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display on your desk or in your living room (though they have already found their way into smaller gadgets like MP3 players, cellphones, and even the odd digital camera display), but if you're fixing to get in on the action, OLED screens are slated to show up in the dashboards of cars like the Aston-Martin DB9, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the Chevrolet Corvette later this year. The big deal about OLED displays is that they're brighter, clearer, and less power-hungry than LCD screens—and once the economies of scale thing kicks in, they promise to be cheaper to produce, too. We're already gazing lustily at that 21-inch prototype Samsung was showing off the other day.
