Re: Future screen improvements?

I am all in favor of a thinner lighter more responsive glass. My NT is the most responsive touch screen device I have thus far and I welcome this new technology. It would push the envelope even further and perhaps the next feat would be to make it stronger and less impervious to scratches and cracks.

One of the big Korean bookstores has a Mirasol-based display out.  

 

On NC general there was a discussion of it for a bit.  There are user forums that UR_Sunshine took a run at translating a little information from.

There are some photos of two 5.7 inch Mirasol displays in this article as well

Mark has actually seen one of the Mirasol units, I believe, and remains unsold.

Re: Future screen improvements?

I'd buy one today if it was 7" or larger.  I don't need more pixels (1024x768 is OK);  I just need bigger pixels.
