Mail $6,500 to me at your earliest opportunity and I'll gladly order a developer's kit, evaluate the unit and let everyone know what an excellent display this is

That unit is incredibly small for SVGA+.

Organic LEDs are indeed made with organic materials. There's lots of interest in using Organic LEDs as a better display technology, especially an improvement over active matrix LCDs. If you consider all of the overhead required to make a high quality, bright, high-contrast AMLCD, then OLEDs make a lot of sense.

OLED displays are in their infancy right now, but will probably advance rapidly, due to a large amount of commercial interest by LOTS of companies.

Here's the best OLED article I've seen lately:

Craig might be able to shed some light (pun intended) on whether our favorite "conventional" LEDs contain organic materials in their substrates.

I know pretty much *nothing* about OLEDs.
Regular LEDs are made from various inorganic materials, using elements & compounds such as gallium, arsenic, nitrogen, indium, aluminum, phosphorus, silicon carbide, di-aluminum trioxide, and others.

Organic LEDs, when severely abused, have been known to strike back at their tormentors by mutating into large monsters, which destroy houses, laboratories, trailers, and automobiles like Godzilla or Myotismon in the Japanese shows.

Smaller versions of OLEDs, when abused, inflict porportionately lesser damage; usually limited to stuffing tampons down a wall urinator, flushing Christmas bulbs down a toliet, or exploding violently in the experimentor's face, spraying various smelly & stinky organic acids into the air. :-O

As far as I know, OLEDs are only bright enough to use as individual pixels in a larger display - forget about using them as a light source for a flashlight.

Lol, talk about future flashlights:

Man 1:"Hey, I got a new flashlight!"
Man 2:"Really, how powerful is it?"
Man 1:"I got one of the new 200 pixel flashlights!"
Man 2:"Oh you are LUCKY, that blows my 75 pixel flashlight out of the water!"

I am definately going to stick with candelas and milli-candelas.
