    I was wondering why no one has brought this up yet. Jobs is known to have said that the reason apple has not entered the netbook/tablet market is because the technology has not been readily available. To me it seems obvious that for a tablet, the most relevant new technology is flexible OLEDs. This technology can cut the devices size in half while maintaining a large screen that unfolds. Let me know what you guys think. If enough of us agree I might make a positive play on samsung.

    Nobody has brought it up? Maybe today, but I doubt even that's true. This has been regularly speculated since...well...since "tablet" meant something made of stone! Use a search and then come back in a couple of years after you've had a chance to digest all of the info out there on it already. :D

    Every "new" technology along the way brings new speculation about a possible Apple solution.

    Thanks for nitpicking. That's exactly the type of reaction I was looking for. Anyone who has anything CONSTRUCTIVE instead of talking about how much information is out there?

    Even if the screen is flexible, the rest of the components that the screen is attached to won't be. OLED screens may have many beneficial qualities for a tablet, but flexibility isn't one of them.

    I havent heard of these flexible OLED's. Link to technology? Sounds interesting. [/CONSTRUCTIVE]

    [FACT] slash [WHATTHEOPDOESNOTLIKE] This does not belong in the iPhone section.

    yeah i know sorry, couldnt find the right thread and figured this might be the most relevant one. If an admin can move it that would be great.
