Samsung puts Police on trail of AWOL OLEDs

Pricey TVs vanish on road to IFA

Business security measures using SSL

Have you seen two über-expensive Samsung OLED TVs? If so, the South Korean giant would very much like to have them back.

The two tellies went walkies somewhere in transit to the IFA consumer electronics show being held this week in Berlin, Samsung admitted today, according to Reuters.

The 55in demo units were destined for Samsung's show stand. They left South Korea just fine, but no one has seen them since. The cops have been called in.

The sets may turn up on eBay, of course, where they could well attract bids in excess of the $10,000 (£6300) the OLED TVs are expected to command at retail when Samsung finally gets around to releasing the things, already said to be ready for production.

No doubt the company's rivals would like to get their mitts on the prototypes, but whether that's the motivation for the theft - if theft it indeed was and not simple misplacement - Samsung isn't saying.

Originally expected to go on sale globally this year, it now seems the set will ship only in Korea, with a global rollout following in 2013. ®
