Technology is a wonderful thing. It allows people to do much more than they ever imagined. One of the best things about technology is that it is always changing and there is always something new on the horizon. There is nothing more exciting than hearing about some type of new technology that is about to be released. People anticipate what this new technology may offer them and look forward to the day when it is actually available. When it comes to the display screens that are used for computers, televisions and anything else with a screen, the changes in technology are truly amazing.
Screens have gone from Cathode ray tubes to LCD displays to LED displays. The screens have resulted in many acronyms including HDTV, CRT, and now OLED. One of the technologies that people are starting to look forward to is the flexible AMOLED technology that is being introduced by Samsung on the new Galaxy 2 tablet this summer.
Faster Stronger Brighter:
Faster, stronger and higher is the motto that many Olympic athletes adhere to. Flexible AMOLED displays promise to bring people images on their screens that are faster, stronger and brighter than anything has been able to deliver in the past. The screens will be able to be viewed from any different angles which has not always been possible in the past with other types of display screens. LCD screens are considered to be very good, but they offer slow response speed and cannot be seen from certain angles. The new Flexible AMOLED technology corrects those deficiencies. The flexible AMOLED also eliminates the problem that is known as burn-in. There are no ghost images left on the screen when it is turned off.
What Devices Will Use It:
At some point anything with a screen will be able to take advantage of the flexible AMOLED technology. The money to develop this technology is coming from Samsung and LG and they manufacture a wide variety of products that use display screens. Some of the places where technology this can be really effective car dashboards and smartphones. The flexible AMOLED display is not as affected by temperature fluctuations as the older technology is. This allows the screen to be used in many devices where other screens are not as effective. The fact that the screens are pliable will allow them to be placed in many locations that are not perfectly flat. A watch will actually be able to around the wrist if the screen is flexible. The real limits for this technology will be the people who are using them.
When Will it Arrive:
The process to create this technology has been going on for many years and the end is finally in sight. Production is expected to begin on the new Samsung Galaxy 2 tablets that will use flexible AMOLED technology by the end of summer and it will be in people’s hand soon after that. The full extent of this technology will not be known for a while. As people find more ways to use it, they will get it to the public. As long as there is a demand for it, someone will build it.
