With the success of the iPad, lots of platforms are looking to take advantage of some of the technology offered. One of these is the bright and clear IPS display panel. With these panels only available on the iPad and rumored to be coming to the next-gen iPhone, it seems only the most expensive of devices can sport these displays.


Hitachi has different ideas, and is looking to IPS screens to the masses by making the technology viable for less expensive handsets and tablets in the future. The company is tweaking the elements inside the panel, trying to simplify things and make them cheaper to produce without sacrificing quality. A simple rearrangement of how the parts are layered seems to be the key, allowing less pieces needing replacement in case of damage and thereby cutting costs.


No word yet on when or where we may see this new tech, but anything that keeps prices down and brings good quality to our mobile tech is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
