This paper discusses some developments about organic LED (OLED)-based displays. In 2003, Kodak introduced a digital still camera, EasyShare LS633, with an OLED. The first time in such a product, with all the benefits touted for this display technology. Kodak's Dr. Ching Tang is credited with the discovery of OLED technology. In addition, it showed Kodak's confidence that the OLED display's durability issues had been solved to an acceptable degree. In 2004, Sony announced a multimedia PDA based on the Palm OS, the VZ90, for the Japanese market. VZ90 takes advantage of the OLED display with clearly outstanding features. It is three times brighter than a comparable LCD. The real eyecatching attribute is the contrast ratio, rated at 10X higher in contrast than similar LCD. At the Consumer Electronics Show in 2004, Ovideon introduced the Aviah personal video player with an OLED display. With a $600 price tag and five gigabytes hard-disk drive. Once the operational life and costs are in line with consumer expectations, OLED displays may be as prevalent as Lilon batteries in portable applications.
