Sony's XEL-1 OLED TV: now available Stateside

The telly doesn't come cheap, mind. It may only be 3mm thick, but it'll set you back $2500 (£1300) – the cost of three decent-sized plasma or LCD TVs. And the XEL-1 is just 11in in the diagonal.

Skinny, init?

Still, this is the cutting edge. OLED delivers brighter, more vivid colours than other flat-panel technologies and consumes a lot less power. Find out all the detail in Register Hardware's future-display technology feature.

The XEL-1 has a contrast ratio of over 1,000,000:1, Sony said. It has two HDMI ports and a Memory Stick slot from which it can read and display photo files.

Convinced? Then place your order pronto. Sony is selling the XEL-1 only through its Sony Style chain and in ominously “limited supply”.
