Shattering traditional AM OLED size limitations, the new prototype offers a maximum screen brightness of 600 nits; a black-and-white contrast ratio of 5,000:1; and, a color gamut of 80 percent. Motion pictures with ultra-high quality images can be impeccably reproduced by skillfully employing OLED's rapid video response capabilities for image processing of HD-class resolution. The ultra-thin shape of the panels will allow future TV set designers to create televisions with a total thickness of only 3cm or less.
Low resolution though:
The high-definition-compatible OLED prototype has a wide screen pixel format of 1280x800 (WXGA) driven by an amorphous silicon (a-Si) active matrix backplane to permit faster video response times with low power consumption.
There is the theory of the moebius. A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.
Originally posted by MrDigital I also just noticed they released "the world's first 21" HD-class (1920x1080) OLED panel in January, 2005." I wonder if that's for sale anywhere.
Would that be 1080p?
It's 1080p with an additional 120 pixels vertically. Computer monitors tend to be 16:10 rather than 16:9, as that way they can display standard resolutions better (1080p would be 1920x1080, but would only allow for 1440x1080 in a 4:3 resolution...whereas 1920x1200 allows for 1600x1200).

The funny thing about this is that they are having issues with blue still. Samsung does not expect this monitor to last longer than the show. If you ask me, OLED still has a long way to come. On the other hand SED should be out later this year - which is good. It will hopefully be the first of the next generation technologies that can really rival the CRT and put the underperforming LCD out of business once and for all.
