Sharp Corporation created a 2.2-inch super-thin LCD for mobile devices with only 0.68 mm thick. This new delivers superior image quality approaching that of an LCD TV thanks to a high contrast ratio of 2000:1, wide viewing angle of 176°, and fast response speed of 8 ms, which are among the highest levels in the industry.
Sharp Mobile Advanced Super View LCD will be exhibited at FPD International 2007 to be held at Pacifico Yokohama on October 24 to 26.
The transition from people using portable DVD players to playing video from portable devices is in full force right now. While those portable DVD players were great while they lasted, they suffered from the same problem portable CD and tape players suffered from: the CD or tape. The Sakar iView is solving the problem of video through the solution of the iPod. You just plug your iPod into the dock, and it both plays your videos on it 7″ screen and charges your iPod. Suppose that you don’t want to limit it to your iPod, you can always use its audio and video inputs to play other content. So you probably already have an iPod, just pay $150 for the iView, buy a few videos from iTunes, and you are set you go for that cross-country road trip.
I don’t normally make it a habit of lugging my Xbox 360 around to other people’s houses, but should the desire ever arise (or if you have a car to do the lugging for you), MojoPlay’s MP-920XB is at your service. It’s a 9.2-inch traveling display that connects to your 360 and lets you play games when someone else is hogging up the TV. The screen has an 800×480 resolution along with built-in speakers and dual headphone jacks. It’s out today for $170 with PS3 and Wii equivalents slated for next year, though personally I wouldn’t wanna play any console games on a display smaller than 26-inches.
