LG's OLED TV will cost $10,000

October release in Australia for $10K OLED TV

LG’s EM9600 OLED TV will arrive in Australia in October with a $10,000 price tag attached, according to an advertising document sighted by Good Gear Guide.

The document says that LG will launch its premium OLED TV in October 2012, in line with the company’s previous estimates of an Australian launch towards the end of 2012 “in time for Christmas”.

The key selling points of the upcoming OLED TV are its 4mm thick chassis and a four-colour sub-pixel technology, which introduces white pixels alongside the standard red, green and blue for a brighter overall picture.

OLED TV technology is still in its infancy, with Samsung also showing a prototype at CES. Sony is also investing in OLED TV production, after releasing a 11in OLED TV in 2009 for $7000.

In 2010, Samsung launched the Series 9, a $10,000 LED TV along the same lines as LG’s upcoming EM9600. The 7.98mm thick TV was superceded and discontinued in 2011 after mediocre sales.

A representative of LG would not confirm any release date or price, telling Good Gear Guide that “all PR/marketing and advertising campaigns are still in the development stage."

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
