Smartphones with crazy high resolutions are coming — for real now. The first smartphone with a 1280x720 resolution screen isn't from Samsung or Sony Ericsson, it's actually from LG and its 4.5-inch screen LG Optimus LTE U+. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
What's the highest resolution display that money can buy, starting in September? That honor belongs to Eizo Nanao's $36,000 36.4-inch DuraVision FDH3601 display with a whopping 4,096 x 2,160 resolution. Yup, that's just a hair higher than two 1080p displays combined.
For today's healthy Apple iPad 3 rumor: a Retina Display with a whopping 2048x1536 resolution screen. First rumored back in January, "proof" in iOS 5 could point to new high-resolution iPad 3 screen tech.
Ladies and gents, a new wave of mobile displays is upon us — ones with resolutions that rival an HDTV's. Ortus Technology has what it claims is the world's smallest full HD 1080p 4.8-inch display boasting a 1920x1080 resolution. That Retina Display in the iPhone 4 now looks kind of crummy, doesn't it?
And you thought the iPhone 4's 960 x 640 Retina Display was sweet. Hitachi's new 4.5-inch IPS LCD for smartphones has even more pixels than you could possibly need in a mobile device.
Rumors of an iPad 2 sporting a super high-resolution Retina Display continues to gush out like the Niagara Falls. For the first time, real evidence has been discovered that suggests the iPad 2 could actually have a crazy 2048 x 1536 resolution screen.
One gamer wasn't satisfied with a 60-inch plasma at home so he sought out the next best thing: an 820-feet long display. What game did he want to play? Apparently some World of Warcraft knock-off called Magic World Online 2.
Samsung is preparing a new screen for its Galaxy Tab tablet. The new screen retains the Galaxy Tab's 7-inch size, but replaces its LCD with a Super AMOLED screen. Get ready for colors that will pop right off the screen.
Pictured above is Dr. Larry Weber, the man who essentially invented plasma TV. He's working to have plasma, with its better performance in the dark and wider viewing angles, replace LCD screens on laptops and tablets. And he's doing it from his garage.
