Sony shows off 0.2mm thin OLED display

Engadget reports Sony managed to get its OLED displays even thinner. They have a prototype of a 0.2mm thin 3.5" OLED panel and a 0.3mm thin 11" OLED display!
Damn, sexy huh? That's Sony's 0.2-mm (0.0079-inch) thin OLED display. Granted, this 3.5-inch prototype is only capable of 320 x 220 pixels, just shy of a cellphone standard QVGA resolution. However, that panel's fracking impressive when compared to those relatively chubby 0.67-mm (and that's a world's slimmest), 320 x 240 pixel LCDs capable of just 2.2-inches of display. And just look at those blacks -- you can barely see the bezel.

Oh my... we just noticed that Sony's also showing off a 0.3-mm thin, 11-inch OLED with 960 x 540 pixel resolution. That's 10x slimmer than Sony's XEL-1 OLED TV.
