Sony's 11-inch XEL-1 OLED TV Finally Ships in January for $2,500

The Pitch: Sony finally brings their OLED TV (which we've been seeing and hearing about forever) to market at $2,500 in January. It's the first OLED TV in the US, and takes advantage of OLED's 1 million to 1 contrast ratio, low power consumption, and rapid response time.
The Catch: It's only 11-inches, which means you won't be buying this for anything except to show off to your nerd friends that you've got an OLED TV.

XEL-1 Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) Television
Available in January for about $2,500
• North America's first Organic LED television
• 11-inch screen is ultra slim with a depth of only 3 millimeters
• Light emitting structure delivers 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, very deep blacks and unmatched color expression and picture detail
• Extremely bright picture with low power consumption
• Rapid panel response time for a clear, blur-free picture
• Exceptionally wide viewing angles unmatched by other TV devices
• Remarkably wide color range surpassing other displays


Why all the sarcasm and hate? New tech is almost always impractical and overpriced when first released (hard drives, anyone?), but over time it becomes exponentially more feasible and affordable for the average consumer.

I say kudos to Sony for breaking the ice.
