Multimedia, AV Thin TVs made with organic light-emitting diodes could become a big hit with consumers, but not any time soon, according to Toshihiro Sakamoto, president of the Panasonic AVC Networks company. "It will start to grow as a market in 2015," he said during an interview at the Consumer Electronics Show taking place here this week. "You won't be able to beat the cost and price performance of LCD and plasma for a long time."

While OLED may be interesting for flexible displays, I don't see it as a big deal for `home' televisions.
Instead, Mitsubishi showed a laser hd-tv, which promises wider gamut, lower power requirements, and half the weight and cost of plasma/LCD screens.
(See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser_TV).
