LED and OLED are quite different.
LED = LCD/TFT with LED backlighting.
OLED = every pixel is a LED, and provides it's own lighting (such as a plasma screen, but a hell of a lot more efficient).

OLED = organic LED, and as stated, due to the organic nature, each pixel is self illuminating

Let's all try not to jump on the silly trend where LED = LED backlit LCD. It'll just get confusing in the future. An LED display is a display in which the pixels are individual LEDs (or triplets in the case of color). They are used in some outdoor displays and 'jumbotrons' Maybe LED backlit LCDs should be called LBLCDs?

Dear Jane,
As awesome as another AMOLED phone sounds, I do not think that Tom's should be promoting carcinogenic products.

I believe that any phone that requires gloves to hold should certainly not be held to one's ear.

With regards,

You do know thats a dust/static safety suit because they are probably in a development lab where exposed circuit boards are kept... right?

Comprehension fail.

It's called sarcasm.

I meant that some people really are that stupid.
And we shouldn't laugh in their face, but help them understand to avoid misunderstandings. Because stupid people usually are quite vocal.

I live in beautiful sunny southern Arizona where the sun shines 350 days a year. I was wondering when someone was going to make a screen that worked in full sunlight.
