AMOLED reaches price parity with LCD and now costs less than LCD to produce

Most of the world's tablets and smartphones use LCD display
costing in the range $15 to $30.

They are mostly LCDs at present because LCDs were the cheapest
ways to make colour displays.

Thats now all changed.

OLED displays have been slow to evolve, but its taken off
in a masive way recently and is ready to displace
all LCDs due to cost.

The common basic OLED display is two layers of paint
that glow when electricity is applied across the two layers.
A simple transistor is placed next to each pixel to mak it into
an AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) so that it
is easier to switch each pixel on and off.

The colour device doesn't need a complex light box and backlight
system which wastes a lot of electricity regardless of
how many pixels are lit.

AMOLEDs consume power depending on how many pixels are lit.

That makes them much more power efficient.

They are also faster at turning on and off
and so video doesn't fog as the action speeds up.

They can be printed on to flexible tape which means they
can be wrapped around curved objects.

So if you creating a lot of Linux gadgets, be sure to
ask for AMOLEDs first. These devices are daylight visible,
have much darker black colour, and lighting up just a few
pixels to indicate a status for example, wastes far less
power than an LCD display.

Within a year or two, LCDs are going to be hard to
purchase. Standing still and doing nothing is not an option.

LCD or AMOLED!

In the small sizes, anyway.  Still cool.  I would like to see large
OLED televisions become more affordable.  This LCD-backlit LED stuff
we've got today is far from ideal.

Shit.  I got that backwards, obviously.  LED-backlit LCD's, is what
we've got.
