    Samsung Galaxy S III’s Display Better Than iPhone 5’s On Paper, But Users Unlikely To Notice

    According to a new report from research firm IHS, Apple’s iPhone 5 display lags behind the Samsung Galaxy S III’s on the important measure of color gamut, which creates a more vibrant, crisp image with better overall color saturation, but the difference in terms of how users perceive the margin could actually be negligible, and is unlikely to alter buying decisions.

    Move Over 1024×768: The Most Popular Screen Resolution On The Web Is Now 1366×768

    Screens with a 1024×768 resolution are a bit like Windows XP: they have long been surpassed by better options but still remained the most often used screens on the web. That is, until now. According to the latest data from StatCounter, 1366×768 screens just surpassed 1024×768 as the most popular screen resolution used by the visitors to StatCounter’s global network of sites. Read More

    Analysis Confirms iPad Display Really Is One Of The Best Ever Made

    It shouldn’t come as any surprise when someone says that this year’s display, or phone, or what have you, is the best ever. After all, improving the category is what companies strive to do, right? So Apple’s claim (on Samsung’s behalf, really) that the new iPad’s display is the “best display ever on a mobile device” isn’t hyperbolic, just confident. Read More

    Developers: Quick! Get “Retina-Ready” Or Risk Abandonment

    I just got the new iPad in the mail, and naturally the first thing I did was load up a few of my old apps and throw some content on there. Oh god! Oh no! One of my favorite apps, GoodReader, which opens a great variety of files and which I use to consume the enormous PDFs from Google Books, is a patchwork of pixels. My go-to Mahjong game, aliased to hell! Muji notebook – my pencil leaves… Read More

    Kindle Fire Display Doesn’t Stand Up To Nook, iPad 2 In Tests

    You probably know that not all LCDs are created equal: at a given size, you can have different resolutions, lighting methods, and display-driving technologies. Apple has led the way in this regard, generally shelling out in its products for the best options available, while cheaper brands tend to take a bit off the price tag by going with a cheaper or smaller display. That’s certainly… Read More

    Aerial 3D: Amazing System Shows 3D Objects In Mid-Air, With No Screen (Video)

    Since 2006, Tokyo-based Burton has been working on Aerial 3D, a technology that makes it possible to produce pictures in 3D in mid-air or underwater – without using a screen (that’s what I call “True 3D Technology” indeed). Burton says their laser-based system is the only one of its kind. The current system projects objects at 50,000 dots per second and with a frame rate… Read More

    Moverio: Epson Announces World’s First See-Through 3D Head-Mounted Display

    Epson Japan announced [JP] the so-called Moverio today, a see-through 3D head-mounted display (HMD), which is the first of its kind, according to the company. Think of it as mix between of NEC’s transparent HMD Tele Scouter and Sony’s cool 3D OLED head mounted display HMZ-T1, powered by Android OS. The Moverio creates the experience of watching 3D (or 2D) pictures on a virtual… Read More

    Video: This 3D Display Uses Multiple Lenses To Boost Sense Of Depth Perception

    Naked-eye 3D displays, even large-sized models, are nothing special anymore, but they usually have a common problem: the 3D effect when viewing pictures isn’t as strong as with displays that require users to wear glasses. Professor Kakeya from Tsukuba University in Japan is trying to solve the problem. The way his 3D display works is actually pretty simple: it uses multiple layers and… Read More

    Glareless Glass, Flexible Solar-Powered E-Paper, And More From FPDI

    You wouldn’t expect an event like FPDI, the Flat Panel Display International Exhibition, to be much more than a dry little gathering of circuit benders and substrate wranglers. And that’s kind of what it is. But you would do well to remember that these pixel jockeys are putting together the screens that make things like the iPhone 4 possible. And this year’s expo looks like… Read More

    Will The Future’s Pixels Be Micro-Mirrors?

    I unintentionally set off a nice little flame war last week when I criticized Samsung’s decision to go with a Pentile sub-pixel matrix for their new Galaxy Nexus phone, a display technology that doesn’t have an illustrious past and, while it may prove itself in this generation, still made me lose confidence in the phone. Sub-pixel layouts are something few people consider, but (as… Read More
