CARLSBAD, Calif.--A steady stream of folks rushed the stage Wednesday after Howard Stringer's speech, but they weren't looking to corner the Sony CEO. Rather, they wanted to see his superthin television.
Sony already has an 11-inch OLED model that sells for $2,500, but Stringer showed an even thinner model due out within the next 12 months. It's thinner than a credit card, just 0.3mm thick.
Among those who went onstage to see it was decor guru Martha Stewart, who gave it the all-important thumbs up. "I like it," Stewart told me, adding that she already has several Sony VAIO displays.
