Samsung ready to show off 10-inch tablet display with 2560 x 1600 resolution Samsung will show off their upcoming 300dpi WQXGA PenTile RGBW prototype tablet display at next week's SID Display 2011 conference, says the company.
The impressive 10.1-inch LCD display will have 2560 x 1600 resolution.

Pixel density is 300dpi meaning the resolution will fit in the definition of "Retina Display," as defined by Apple.

Says the company in the press release:

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. 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.


A few more highlights from the tablet display:


-This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of luminance, yet uses 40 percent 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.

Either way, i think the same basic technology goes into much of all the displays one way or another, and this advancement can't hurt HDTV too. I'm most excited to see OLED displays starting to come of age.
