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.
