Big, cheap OLED displays mainstream by 2009-2010

It’s just a matter of time before you’ll be able to point at friends, family, and co-workers and laugh at them about how stupid their LCD monitors look compared to your sweet active-matrix OLED monitor.

According to DigiTimes, Samsung’s betting that its active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) production should reach economies of scale by the end of next year, with 3 million panels produced versus the current 1.5 million panels this year. By 2010, that number should reach 6 million. AMOLED screens will also get larger, too, extending their use into bigger TVs and computer monitors.
