Sony announced it will ship its first OLED TVs in Japan in December.

The display will be only 3mm thin and will feature an impressive 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Unfortunately these displays are very small, the display is only 11" and features a resolution of 940 x 540 pixels but as the technology matures we'll probably get bigger ones too.

Sony says OLED displays feature better color reproduction, fast response times and low power consumption compared to the LCD technology.

The display will feature a terrestrial digital tuner, 2x 1W speakers, HDMI, Ethernet and USB. It weighs only 2kg but will cost approx. $1,749.
