LG slashes cost of OLED TVs

Still not cheap, though

Top three mobile application threats

LG has revealed how much it expects its upcoming 15in OLED HD TV to cost consumers. The good news: it's a lot less than Sony wants for its 11in Xel-1 OLED telly.

The bad news: you'll still be able to buy an enormo LCD screen with LED backlighting and all the latest features for the same price.

LG's EL9500: biggest, cheapest OLED TV yet

According to an LG spokeswoman, the EL9500 will cost between "£1500 and £2000". At the lower end of the range, that's almost half the price of the £3500 Xel-1.

But it's still incredibly expensive for a 15in display, and it's unlikely to set the screen technology on a course to challenge the market dominance of LCD. That first step won't be taken until someone, be it LG, Samsung, Sony or whoever, releases a 32in screen for under £2000.

Super-skinny

The TV a 1366 x 768 resolution and a 10,000,000:1 contrast ratio. LG said the 3.2mm-thick panel is equipped with 100Hz motion interpolation technology, and the telly will incorporate a Freeview tuner.

It also has a USB port allowing JPEG, MP3 and DivX HD files to be played on the screen.

The EL9500 is due to go on sale later this month. ®
