Japan Display Bets Big on 4K Tablets
« on: October 23, 2013, 08:41:28 PM »
If you thought the Retina display on the iPad mini is impressive, you'll be blown away when it comes to 4K displays on tablets.  While there is not a hand-holdable version available just yet, 4K has taken off like wildfire and we're seeing TVs ship already.  The next thing is tablets, laptops and affordable PC displays.  It will be pretty impressive when they cram a 3840x21650 into a 12.1-inch display.  I might pick one of those up.

   Panasonic's already managed to slather its hulking 20-inch tablet in the same resolution, which was a feat in itself. But let's consider something a little more handheld friendly -- something that's not going to smash through our glass coffee table. The unified forces behind Japan Display (including Sony, Toshiba, Hitachi) have announced that they've squeezed 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) into a 12.1-inch TFT module, creating a screen with a retina-piercing 365 pixels per inch.Source: Engadget
