Hitachi affordable 720p HD 4.5-inch smartphone display outed

True HD smartphones could become more common and more affordable in the near future, with Hitachi announcing a new 4.5-inch IPS LCD panel running at 1280 x 720. The amorphous silicon-based TFT promises to be cheaper than existing high-res smartphone panels, which have generally used low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) to bypass issues with the extra wiring necessary for 720p HD and above resolutions. It's a panel fit for Apple, indeed, running at a Retina Display besting 329ppi.

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

When we caught up with LG earlier today, to check out the freshly announced Optimus 3D and Optimus Tab, we couldn't help but wonder about the discrepancy between the smartphone's 1080p Full HD 3D recording capabilities and the tablet's 720p HD 3D recording. Turns out, there's more to a 1GHz, dual-core chipset than just its ARM cores: the Optimus 3D's Texas Instruments OMAP4430 has native support for Full HD recording in 3D, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 in the Tab doesn't.

Call Me When Streaming Matches Blu-ray

Call Me When Streaming Matches Blu-ray

I’ll be the first to admit that when Blu-ray first launched, I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure if the new technology was a worthwhile investment for someone like me. Sure, it delivered more storage and higher-quality video and audio, but I simply saw it as another way to take my hard-earned cash for little benefit over DVD.

Nokia N8 gets 30fps 720p video hack and super-detail still compression tweak

Nokia N8 gets 30fps 720p video hack and super-detail still compression tweak

Archos 28, 32, 43, 70 & 101 Tablets Announced, Feature Android in Range of Sizes

We can probably safely assume at this point that tablets are here to stay. At least for awhile. And considering the effort that Archos has already put into the Android-based "tablet" market, there's no surprise here that they've just pulled the curtain off five (5!) brand new tablet devices, all featuring Google's mobile Operating System. Ranging in sizes and prices, as well as plenty of Archos-based "improvements" to the User Interface, meet the family of new Archos tablets.
