OLED fans will have to be patient, as Samsung's roadmap for the technology shows them only in small handheld devices for this year and next, ramping up to laptop and desktop displays in '09 and finally 40-inch TVs in 2010.

The tech will have lower costs than LCDs or Plasmas eventually, once production ramps up and enough units are out there.
