Samsung is unveiling some of its latest developments on the display side at the SID (Society of Information Display) 2009. From the netbook perspective, the most interesting is a new 10.1-inch LCD which is touted to use around 50 percent less power than normal LCDs. This display is manufactured using Samsung’s proprietary Pentile technology.
This display has a HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels along with “perfect reading capabilities both indoor and outdoor” according to Akhibara News. I’m not sure what that means, but Samsung is also highlighting some next-gen displays which include a 10.2-inch colour e-paper display (something that is maybe similar to Pixel Qi’s 3Qi display) along with a 10.1-inch diagonal integrated-touch netbook panel (anticipating the launch of Windows 7).
