First it appeard to be a hoax, the leaked video of the Google Pixel, but after a few days the leaders from Googleplex in Mountain View spoke, the Pixel is for real. And based on the specifications I would say this is a developers dream. A 3:2 aspect ratio, which means height, not width, a 2560x1700px 12.85-inch screen should offer a highly configurable screen with as much lines as your eyes can distinguish.
There is however a tiny problem, the computer runs ChromeOS, and as a developer who wants to run his own local servers, has his own database,… continue reading
On display in Berlin this week is a prototype of Samsung’s Series 9 ultrabook running a 2560×1440 display.
The Samsung Series 9 is an existing laptop that is ultrabook-approved, quite thin, and a reasonable 1.63 kilograms. It’s a 15-inch laptop, just like the new, slimmed down MacBook Pro, though there is a 13-inch variety as well. The current model has a resolution of 1600×900, which is pretty good for an ultrabook but not even close to 2560×1440.
It also has a 15.4-inch Retina display that boasts a resolution of 2880 x 1800 and 220 ppi. Not surprisingly, Apple was quick to point out this makes it the “world’s highest resolution notebook display.”
Well, there we have it, it’s just a question of time we hope before others take the challenge and create what we’ve been waiting for for so long.
Apple’s new iPad is released with a whopping 2048×1536 resolution. Now that is a screen that I would like to see in a serious laptop. The extreme discrepancy between resolutions of the iPad 3 and laptops for professional usage is noticed in the follow up discussion on HackerNews.
The world has been travelling backwards as it seems. While resolutions on wearable devices as phones and tables have been growing ever since introduction it seems in a short while a new landmark will be passed. Tablets having a screen resolution surpassing that of regular laptops. ASUS has announced an upgrade of their current Prime tablet to a real WUXGA tablet.
Yes, an Android tablet sporting the resolution i would love to have on my laptop. On a tablet. The pixel density on such devices is incredible. And thus the possible crispness of the lines.… continue reading
