February 28, 2010
Two years after the company launched its first model, Sony has decided to cease the production and sales of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs targeting the Japanese market, Reuters reported on February 16. Nevertheless, Sony said that it will continue to sell OLED TVs in other overseas markets. Sony expects to bring the sales of OLED TVs in Japan to a close as the current inventory is depleted. Still, the company plans to maintain related R&D and manufacturing operations for the overseas markets including North America and Europe.
