New Toshiba® LCD display panel introduced
Toshiba strives towards excellence in providing enhanced viewing capability and has exceeded all our expectations in providing the best LCD display panel for mobile devices. You will be astounded when your eyes catch a glimpse of the new LCD 6.1-inch display panel that Toshiba has demonstrated recently. Your retinas will be fixed at this razor sharp display that has a dazzling pixel density of 498 pixels per inch (ppi) with an unbelievable high resolution.
This LCD panel achieves a high-definition photographic quality and its images impart amazing depth and realism. This is achieved with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 that is capable of displaying 16.7 million different colors with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. The vertical and horizontal viewing angles can be up to 176 degrees.
Toshiba credits the creation of this new panel to its work in the development of LTPS technology, or low temperature poly silicon. This display technology is based on processing techniques with low temperature poly silicon (LTPS) thin-film transistors (TFT) on glass substrates and other fabrication techniques that Toshiba has been cultivating over many years. Low temperature poly silicon helps to make higher pixel density that makes text and images appear more readable. This technology in turn proves to be of great use when used for smaller device screens like handhelds and portable diagnostic equipment and even for larger screens as well.
Toshiba has not yet announced any concrete product plans beyond demonstrating its current display panels. This is causing lot of confusion everywhere as 6.1-inch screen is too big for smartphones and is also too small for tablets. But you can have a safe assumption that it can be used in color e-book reader as the most common e-book format is of 6 inches. Toshiba may offer this ultra-high resolution LCD panel itself to the manufacturers of color e-readers.
Till the display panels come in one proper device, these LCD panel displays are being showcased in Yokohama, Japan in the last week of October at the FPD International 2011. So, let us wait and see what surprise Toshiba has in store for its consumers.
