At the end of the year Sony will begin selling the first of a new category of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) TVs that will offer unprecedented color quality, contrast and wide viewing angles in a thinner package. What's the downside? A short lifespan, the OLEDs degrade relatively quickly with about a tenth the lifespan of LCD's.

Implications - The emphasis of portability has launched a large variety of small-screened TVs. The constant need to be entertained on-the-go has been apparent with products such as handheld games, portable DVDs and in-car screens for kids to enjoy. More and more products like these will start to take on even smaller forms for convenient entertainment.
