Samsung introduces World's first Amorphous Silicon (a-Si) 2.6-inch VGA LCD Panel.

Using a-Si technology, mobile phone displays are now capable of projecting the same VGA format found on notebook PCs and desktop monitors.

With almost seven times the resolution of a 42-inch high-definition LCD TV at 300 pixels per inch (ppi), an a-Si enabled mobile phone can be used as a high quality mobile TV.
Mass production on existing lines is scheduled to begin in December of this year.

This is a pretty cool development to have 640x480 on a tiny screen. This opens the door for more functionality on Phones.
More details in Samsung Press-Release.

Conventional wisdom has held that structural properties would limit a-Si technology to 150ppi resolution. However, Samsung Electronics engineers completed a 1.94-inch display with qVGA (207ppi) resolution in May of this year, and continued to improve upon its own a-Si technology to achieve VGA resolution for small- and mid-sized display panels.
