While consumer electronics sales hit peaks and valleys, when a manufacturer like E Ink Holdings reports a significant loss, it’s time to stop and pay attention. The display manufacturer reported a 46% decline in sales over the past year, with a net loss totalling $33.6 million to boot.
The Acer T272HUL Ultra-High Resolution Display is one of three new such IPS LCD monitors hitting the market this year, each of them working with well-above-average high-definition collections of pixels up front. Each of the three works with either a 27 or 29-inch panel and the whole lot sees 178 degree viewing angles both vertically and horizontally. While the T272HUL works with full 10-finger touchscreen capability, the two remaining monitors are aimed at the professional world - the world that doesn't necessarily have a need for touch.
Delivered at a time when the top-tier smartphones on the market have 5-inch displays and so many pixels the average consumer can no longer see them, Samsung has ushered in the dual-screen Android-toting Hennessy. This is no dousing of cognac, mind you, it's a smartphone. Working with a set of 3.3-inch 320 x 480 touchscreen displays and a standard 10-digit physical keypad, you'd expect this machine to be running only the minimal equipment under the hood - but it's just not true.
If you're in the mood this week for a lovely bit of nostalgia, LG is ready to bring the heat in full begone-era fashion with a retro set with physical dials. This is the LG 32LN630R, and beyond the bits and pieces that make it looks very much like a time-traveling set from the 1950s, the company keeps up with the times: 32-inches of 1080p IPS-based display.
There should be no doubt at this point that Apple is preparing to release a reboot for the iPad in the very near future, not least of all because of a set of up-close assembly photos appearing today. This set of photos from Macfixit Australia shows the front glass as well as digitizer assembly of the next-generation iPad, appearing to confirm the idea that this generation, Apple will be kicking out a reaction to the success of the iPad mini.
The LG G2 is being delivered to the public this week at an event where LG has, first and foremost, made it clear that they're no to be beaten in the display department. With the LG G2, the user will be working with a 5.2-inch display working with "True FHD". What LG means when they say True FHD is a more "true" version of Full-HD at 1920 × 1080 than competing smartphones that work with Pentile technology.
Hold both Dell's Project Ophelia and Google's Chromecast in one hand and you might think they're made for the same purpose. Both of them connect with full-sized HDMI, both work with Google's software inside, and both are being delivered inside 2013. This dell device isn't just made for video, though, and we've seen it before - this week it's being delivered to product testers on its way to its final hardware iteration.
You'll be seeing a lot of Samsung Galaxy Note III tips and rumors over the next few weeks, (if this past week is any indicator), so in preparation, today's relative solidification of at least one model should provide a good basis for your exploratory readings. What you're going to see in the Samsung Galaxy Note III according to two sources speaking from across the pond this morning is a 5.7-inch panel with a lovely 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution - that's the same amount of pixels as the Samsung Galaxy S 4 spread out across a bit more screen real estate.
Those who spend a lot of time on the computer usually find two or more monitors to be better than one, but there are some instances where a larger, high-resolution display works better than a set of dual monitors (or in addition to them). Such is a case where Dell's new ultra-high-definition UltraSharp 32 display comes in. The monitor is aimed at professionals who work with media.
Google this week brings a new Nexus 7 to the market along with software updates that will allow full-screen sharing through Hangouts. What this means for the lay person is that, when you connect with a friend or colleague with the Android app Hangouts, you'll not just be able to do video and text chat, you'll be able to share the images on your tablet's screen as well. This includes document editing as well.
NOTE: This feature was shown by Google as a PREVIEW, meaning it won't be released today, but some time in the near future. We'll let you know when it's time!
