samsung-sigma-300.jpgSamsung have announced that it has developed the industry’s first 1.98” LCD panel to achieve 640 x 480 pixels (VGA resolution).
This means that camera and mobile phone-size screens will be able to display images at 300 dots-per-inch, three times that of most LCD displays, and ten times that of many plasma screens. The practical outcome of this is that text will remain legible at smaller sizes, and more data can be viewed without ‘panning and scanning’.
I’m looking forward to the time when PDAs (and laptops) come with screens with this (and greater) resolution. The primary benefit will be that text can be displayed at qualites that approach those of the printed page.
