The inner-geek (well, ok, it's not so much inner, more everyday-geek) really loved seeing this news, Samsung have unveiled a high-resolution, 10.1-inch display that supports a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 that should power next-gen tablets including the next-gen iPad and Android-powered devices.
Samsung's new display is just a tech demo at the moment as it is not ready for mass production. What it does demonstrate is that high-resolution, high-pixel density tablet displays are possible without crazy power requirements that would normally be included. Samsung could also opt to use this new display tech in their own devices (Galaxy Tab Ultra-HD 10.1 maybe? - Contact me Samsung if you like that name). Considering all the lawsuits Apple were flinging at Samsung, if I were Samsung I wouldn't be giving out this tech in a hurry.
But, on the flip side Apple would most likely want 50 million of these screens, making Samsung a nice pile of Dineros. This new display is set to be shown off at the SID Display Week 2011 trade show next week in LA.
