    Oh and let me do the math on the display: 27" iMac with a 16:9 ratio gives us 23.54" by 13.24". The formula for pixels is simply: inches*DPI = pixels. So multiply each side by 300 DPI and we get a resolution of: 7060x3971.

    Doing the same math on a 10.1" screen we see that the actual resolution for 300 DPI is 2569x1605. So we're actually getting gipped 27245 pixels (2569*1605-2560*1600 : calculated pixels - actual pixels). But I really don't think anyone is that anal about it.
    It could be that the actual pixels for the 10.1" screen is 2569x1605, but 2560x1600 is a more rounded number and they advertised that instead. Then we'd be getting an extra 27,245 pixels.

    This screen is for the Galaxy Tablet, not the phone. Not sure I'd want a 10.1" phone, lol.

    Because they did that in the 80's with computers and ended up with too many. They weren't selling enough and by the time they were at a reasonable amount it was now outdated tech and it cost the company. It's also simple supply and demand, if you limit the supply it will increase demand. I understand not everyone who wants said product will be able to get one initially but those who weren't lucky enough to get it at release will still eventually do so. Also supply constraints in this case, being a product already having considerable demand, will positively effect the long term demand as well. Apple knows this and they know the above thinking, that is to say overproducing, is not smart business and have unfortunately had first hand experience with the fallout.

    Nice screen though, one more reason to hold off on the iPad 2.

    because odds are Apple will not include this type of display in iPad until next year for iPad3, that means wait 1 year. 1 year is a loooonnnnggg time in tech world, someone else would be able to product similar product at cheaper price *cough*china*cough* That would mean you are stuck with bunch of displays you can't get rid of. Unless Apple place an order for them right now, nobody is going to mass produce anything.

    "For those unfamiliar with the term "Retina" display, it is Apples term for a display that produces a pixel density so high the human retina can't discern between pixels from any viewing distance."


    Sigh, no, this is wrong. The viewing distance plays a specific role in this, which is exactly why Mr. Jobs told you/us all that in regards to the iphone, that at the distance MOST people hold it, you can't distinguish between the pixels.

    With Apple suing Samsung right now over such petty issues, I hope Samsung tells Apple to take a hike if they come calling for the new screen.

    this as well as the costs of holding inventory. it costs money to hold a million extra screens which is why a business will usually have an estimate of how many they will sell and produce/buy accordingly. it also makes their net income lower if they have a lot of ending inventory left over and thats something any company doesnt want

    Actually, assuming the display is EXACTLY 300 DPI, the diagonal measurement is 10.06291 inches, which of course they just round to 10.1 inches.

    So really you're getting jipped 0.037987 inches of diagonal screen.

    Why does anyone even try to get a "first" any more? If you REALLY were serious about getting a first then you could just pick a section that has new articles put up more frequently than others and keep hitting refresh until you see a new article. It isn't hard nor does it garner you any kind of prestige.

    That being said, I foresee Samsung and Apple doing business for a long time to come despite their quibbles. Samsung is just trying to get their piece of the pie, they aren't trying by any means to knock the iPad off it's top sales pedestal. I can't wait until this technology makes its way into the new Macbooks.

    You're probably right. Besides 2560 by 1600 rolls of the tongue better than 2569 by 1605.

    Actually, the iPhone 4 has a better display, instead of 300DPI, it has 326DPI.

    Nice clever attempt at quoting "Everyone" when I think there was MAYBE 1 post saying "I hope the next iPhone also has this" when in fact it was something to the effect of I wish this was a phone(notice the lack of reference to ANY specific phone). Perhaps they wished they had an iPad-sized phone that could make calls and had a phone number that worked over 3G.

    Also your claim of "better" is subject to all aspects of the display. What if this one uses less power and has a better contrast ratio than the Retina display? Is the Retina still "better"? What if this one is able to be manufactured thinner thus leaving more room for components or a bigger battery? Is the Retina still "better"?

    I could go on but I think you get the point by now.

    I think this is a step in the right direction for Samsung because it either will increase sales for them, guarantee longer-term business relations with Apple, or both. Maybe it will finally convince Apple to switch to Samsung as their primary IPS LCD manufacturer instead of LG too.

    You need to quote my entire post if you're going to question what the point of it was. Try again.

    As for Apple and Samsung. Doesn't Apple already use Samsung's nand flash memory? Also SOME iPhones/iPads use Samsung IPS LCDs but currently the majority of them use LG's displays so I figured Apple would be more inclined to adjust their ratio of LG vs. Samsung for parts more towards Samsung if they stepped up their display game to match LG.
