OLED Screens: Worth It or No?

Lots of talk lately about OLED screens being something we’ll be seeing on lots of devices in the future. Certainly from what I’ve seen first hand and from what I’ve read they are pretty to look at and they do draw less energy. That said, I’ve seen a few reports lately about the Nexus One that says the OLED screen makes it difficult to read out of doors in sunlight.

So, that begs a question from me and I’m looking for opinions. I’m very pleased with the screen on the iPhone when I’m out doors. In fact, I think I’m on record somewhere as saying it is the best outdoor viewable screen I’ve ever worked with. That said, do we really want to move to a new technology that offers good promises in some areas and takes a step back in others?


I’d love to know your thoughts.
