Samsung announces 10.1-inch LCD for tablets with mind-numbing resolution

Samsung and its partner Nouvoyance have announced a new, 10.1-inch WQXGA display specifically designed for use in tablets. The panel utilizes Noyvoyance’s PenTile technology to “improve the brightness, resolution, contrast, and power consumption,” and packs a mind-numbing 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. To put some perspective on that: the 27-inch LCD screen I’m currently using has a maximum display resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The display also boasts a pixel density of 300 dpi while using two-thirds fewer sub-pixels. “Samsung’s PenTile display technology is the only display technology that operates at 40 percent less power yet provides twice that of Full HD-viewing performance for consumers compared to legacy RGB stripe LCDs,” said Samsung’s Senior VP of Electronics, Dr. Sungtae Shin. “There is no other commercial display technology on the market today that offers this high of a resolution and pixel density in a 10.1-inch size display.” Samsung expects the panel to be commercially available later this year. The full press release is after the break.

Motorola redefines elegance with the AURA

Motorola announced on Tuesday its new luxury phone, the Motorola AURA. The AURA features the world’s first circular display with 16 million colors and 300 dpi resolution and is the first phone to really capture that “cyclops” look. You wont need an invisible shield for this phone as the display is covered with Grade 1, 62-carat sapphire crystal lens, one of the most scratch-resistant materials on earth, and the housing is crafted from stainless steel that is electro- and hand polished, chemically etched, and PVD coated. No wonder why it takes two weeks to create the front of the phone. The handset has an assisted-opening blade that is comprised of a Swiss-made, custom-engineered rotating mechanism with 130 precision ball bearings and custom Tungsten Carbide Coated Gears.  To separate the phone from the full, we should tell you that the AURA sports quad-Band GSM 850/900/1800/1900, EDGE, a 2 MP Fixed Focus camera, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR with A2DP, text and email messaging, multimedia playback, and a yet to be named open source browser. Smooth and sexy with an hint of class and an interesting design is the new Motorola AURA. If you fancy one for yourself, you wont have to wait very long as it is expected to launch worldwide at the beginning of Q4 2008. Start cashing in your piggy banks now as this won’t be your father’s cheap flip phone, ringing up the registers at $1,999.
