New Samsung 10.1-inch 2,560 x 1600px PenTile has Apple iPad Fans excited
 
 

Samsung announced today the first 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600px) format PenTile RGBW tablet display. The 10.1-inch 300 dpi display is ideal for applications that require extraordinary image and text clarity such as browsing the web and viewing high-definition movies, or reading books and spreadsheets. The iPhone 4 retina display has 326dpi. The new Samsung display would bring retina display quality ot the iPad 3. This has of course Apple iPad fans excited.

As this is still a prototype, I do not expect Samsung to be ready for mass production this year. An Apple iPad with 10.1-inch Retina display would earliest be ready in 2012. Note that the current iPad display is slightly smaller with 9.7-inch. That the iPad 3 would get a retina display was already a rumor earlier this year.

PenTile RGBW WQXGA Technology Highlights:

  • This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of luminance, yet uses 40% less power than that used by legacy RGB stripe LCDs in power-saving modes.
  • An outdoor brightness mode of as much as 600 cd/m2 luminance enables viewing in bright ambient lighting.
  • The display’s color gamut is 72 percent., allowing greater color realism than legacy RGB stripe tablet displays that have a typical color gamut of 55 percent NTSC.
  • PenTile technology achieves 300 dpi resolution with two-thirds the number of subpixels, maintaining the VESA/ICDM display resolution standard.

Samsung will demonstrate the 10.1-inch hi-res display prototype at the SID Display Week 2011 International Symposium on May 17-19 in LA.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
