When high definition TV was first introduced 15 years ago, the public’s reaction was ‘wow!’ Now, when customers see our razor-thin OLED TV for the first time, they’re left speechless. That’s a clear indicator as any that OLED TV is much more than just an incremental improvement to current television technology.[/quote]
