Apple iPod to get OLED display?

Posted on Thursday, July 13 2006 @ 3:02 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Inquirer heard from one of their sources that some of Apple's upcoming iPods will feature OLED instead of TFT displays.
These will be limited to the smallest models, but whether we’re talking a replacement for the Shuffle or the Nano is not clear yet.

While OLEDs may look gorgeous, with excellent viewing angles when viewed indoors, they fare much less well in bright sunlight, becoming about as useful as a piece of blank glass.

Of course, in an Apple, they’ll be the coolest piece of glass in existence, but not so good for reading your MP3 track name. Still it’s one up over the current Shuffle.
