Quick CES Field Report...Thin is In

Ok, never blogged from a mobile phone before, so be patient.

There's a lot of themes running through the CES floor this year, but one of them is clearly "thin is in." It seems everyone and their mother is trying to get a "waffer thin" HD screen out to market successfully to try and beat Sony's OLED to the punch.

A lot of these screens are impressive - but none came close to the thinness, brightness, color and just plain "cool factor" of the Sony OLED. Oh sure, its only 11" diagonal and obscenely expensive, but Sony also had their prototype 40" model on display...and that was tasty.

In no particular order (primarily cuz I can't figure out how to order pictures on this blog from a flippin' cell phone), here's some of the more noteworthy contenders: The Hitachi "1.5" series, the Sharp 20mm prototype, and the Sony OLEDs...

Nice to run across a fellow "rocket man" - especially one whose blog I like...
