Last year at CES, LG showed us a beautiful OLED television that we were promised would hit the market in 2012. It never arrived. Now, almost exactly a year later, LG has started taking orders for a gorgeous 55-inch OLED TV it announced earlier this week, but it’s only available in South Korea for now.
Reuters reports that LG’s 55-inch OLED has hit the retail market in South Korea for about $10,000 a pop. At that price, commissioning a container ship to carry one to our shores will hardly cost anything. According to the report, the OLED TVs are expected to hit showrooms in the US and Europe in the first quarter of this year. Now that the OLED seal has been broken, we’re looking forward what other manufacturers have in store for our viewing (and purchasing) pleasure at CES next week. [Reuters]
