You can do that now - If the N900 has a CCFL backlight(and I'm sure it is), it's going to be running at several hundred volts. Ergo, high voltage.
(Note: I know that 12" CCFLs in lcd screens and such run at ~600V. Not sure what a 4" one runs at.)

As far as what I want, I have to say I like LCDs, /because/ of the blacklight bleed. It always reminds me of the Linking Books from Myst, the video portion of which would always turn slightly redish before playing. I also like seeing it because it means the screen's on, and (usually) getting an all-black signal; the screen's not off or broken.

OLED however may be nice in a few years when we can get cheap, high resolution at 120hz with no transition lag. Oh, and true 24bit(or better) color as well!
Note, though, when I get one I'll probably turn down the brightness/contrast: I don't /want/ a 20000 to 1 contrast ratio - It's hard on my eyes.
My projects: BackupMenu - OS Backup & restore | Video: Flashing your n900(LiveCD)
My devices: N770 + 8GB SD card soldered internally, N900 with 8GB SD card + Custom OC(125-950 typically).
OC freqs: 0:22,90 125:22,90 250:28,180 500:30,360 550:32,400 600:34,430 700:39,430 750:41,430 805:45,430 850:47,500 900:50,500 950:54,500 1000:58,500 1100:67,520 1150:71,520

Actually, I don't think this is the case. As far as I understand, LED screens actually means LED-backlit LCD screens, wheras OLED's are color emitting diodes, which is something very different.
