No OLEDs This Year Says Sony COO, But Expect 3DTV Sales to be High

Sony’s Stan Glasgow talked recently about Sony’s OLED plans, his expectations for 3D technology, and of some upcoming improvements to core products.

Stan Glasgow is the current Chief Operating Officer and President of Sony Electronics USA and he’s got some interesting insight into Sony’s strategies for the coming year.

In an interview with Sony Insider, Stan says that the company won’t be selling a new OLED this year. He loves the technology and says that there’s no better way to create a 3D picture, but admits that “getting it to be commercially reasonable in price, we’ve got a long way to go.”

When it comes to 3D, he’s much more enthusiastic. “I think the adoption of 3D may be a surprise in the second half,” he says. “I believe that 3D is going to take off possibly more quickly than we’re all thinking.”

He also mentioned yet another update coming to the PS3 in the next year. “We’re doing BRAVIA Internet Video Link – which is more of a streaming service than a downloading service… we added it to Blu-ray players, and we’re adding it to the PS3.”
