    They aren't stopping production of either LED or plasma panels. They are cutting production. The article uses the words "cut" and "reduce", not "stop." Pioneer stopped making plasma panels.

    It's pretty clear to me, though that OLED will be getting the massive portion of R&D dollars.

    Not for TV's but to get into the money market of smart phones and tablets where the market allows higher profit margins.

    Samsung and LG have been having problems with OLED sets and have pushed back their introduction a year. Only $10,000 for one. Projected cost.

    I suspect you're right...although several reports indicate that the OLED hardware "to market" speed is advancing slower than originally forecast.

    I can only quote what I read. No sizes mentioned. Big drop from the $25,000 price I've also been reading about. All this depends on the TV makers solving the problems with OLED screens. Sony appears to have given up on them.

    Must be BIG problems for Sammy and LG to push the releases back a year.

    Well, it appears after a brief search, we are talking 55" but the articles I found are dated last May. I don't see Pannys name mentioned, just LG and Samsung.

    Canon and Toshiba gave up on OLED some time ago.

    Seems as if it's just too difficult to make big screens with.

    A few years ago Sammy said they would not do OLED TVs until the screens would last 10 years. And that was not a trivial issue to solve.

    Peace,
