OLEDS suck. The blue's wear out (fade) faster than the other colors, causing color shifting. That's OK for devices like phones that used to live for a couple of years, but I still use my original 3G as an iPod Touch - I'd be seeing color shifting by now
Quantum Dot LED displays are going to be the next big thing in display tech - OLED is stillborn:http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-12-...leds-lcds.html
Easier to manufacture, longer life, no issues with Blue vs. other colors...
In the meantime, the IPS displays Apple is using are pretty darn good. I'll take the Retina display in my iPhone 4 over any OLED screen - the clarity of it is just astonishing - it's a pleasure to look at.
