To turn around dropping sales, TV manufacturers are working on a number of technologies to appeal to consumers, including curved screens.
LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics and Sony all showed curved TVs at the IFA show this week, with various sizes and resolutions, and based on different technologies.
I remember the curved screens in large movie theaters years back... However, having a 50' wide curved screen and a 55" curved screen doesn't seem to be the same unless I am a couple feet away from the screen.
Right now to get a curved screen you will need OLED technology. A full HD 55-inch OLED set from LG, the 55EA9809, already costs $11,800. I think I will wait for the curved screen, though I AM very excited about OLED. Let's put it this way... I'm about as excited for OLED as I was for HDTV/Blu-Ray/HD DVD....
Who's stepping up to get an OLED?
