It’s hard to say that a nearly $1,000 display is affordable, but Acer’s newly-launched 32-inch B326HK is one of the less-expensive monitors in the 4K market. With a resolution of 3840x2160 (four times the available pixels of a 1920x1080 display) and IPS technology for wide-angle viewing, the display is bound to get the attention of everyone from artists to gamers.The B326HK isn’t a flashy display, but it’s designed to be easy to adjust, whether you want to raise, lower, or tilt it. The monitor also comes with a full complement of ports, including HDMI with MHL (for mobile devices), DisplayPort,... Read more...
Need a way to spend a small fortune on a new HDTV? LG has you covered. The company has just started shipping its 105-inch 21:9 curved Ultra HD TV, which might just require a room of its own to properly enjoy. In sum, the screen boasts over 11 million pixels with a 5120x2160 resolution, as well as a 7.2-channel sound system (150-watt) built-in below. The screen was initially launched at CES, and now it's taking pre-orders in its home market of South Korea. If you're not looking to import, you'll need to wait until Q4 to hear more. Unfortunately, exact pricing details are being kept under wraps,... Read more...
Bigger is in, certainly when glancing at the smartphone universe. Phablets have proven to be more than a fad, and even "normal" smartphones are above the 4" mark. Now, Apple is about to join that bandwagon. According to suppliers in Taiwan cited in a new Reuters report, the next iteration of the iPhone (likely the iPhone 6) will boast a 4.7" display, and could hit shelves as early as August. That'd be a change in ship date from the past few iPhone models, which hit closer to the holiday shopping rush. But, here's why: Apple may then introduce yet another iPhone model, with a screen hovering around... Read more...
One has to wonder: is it possible to have access to too many pixels? Probably not, particularly if you're Toshiba. The company has just outed one of the planet's first 4K laptops, and if pixel density is your top priority, this one's going to be tough to resist. The Satellite P55t has a full-fledged 4K display, and the first to earn Technicolor's Color Certification. It's meant mostly for creative pros, but enthusiasts will find plenty to love as well. It's equipped with a 15.6" IPS screen, a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and 282PPI (pixels per inch) to gawk at. Toshiba clims that it's Technicolor Certified... Read more...
While Yahoo's logo didn't draw too much (any?) applause, the company's refined mobile apps have been nearly universally praised. Now, it's branching out into yet another sector: the second screen. Yahoo Screen is a new iOS app, which Yahoo says is designed to bring a "simple, intuitive experience that turns your finger into a remote control. Just swipe through channels of content from Yahoo and our great partners then lean back and watch…no matter where you are." You'll be able to browse through trending clips, search for shows, or jump right in and start watching. Swiping left and right... Read more...
Dynaflo introduced a new liquid screen protector known as LIQUID-ARMOR. According to the company, you can protect the glass screen of all of your favorite electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, and cameras. LIQUID-ARMOR is designed to be twice as strong as traditional screen protection film. According to Dynaflo, the LIQUID-ARMOR won't interfere with the sensitivity of a touch screen or its clarity. LIQUID-ARMOR is designed to help repel dust and is also weather-resistant. An application of LIQUID-ARMOR is said to last for up to six months. The spray is available for... Read more...
Most of the time, companies have extol their new devices, and explain why Product A is superior to Product B. But sometimes, you do things like this. Sharp has just introduced the "largest TV on the planet." And really, need we say more? Actually, we do. There are without question TV sets out there larger than this one, but you won't find any as close to these in terms of pricing and consumer-friendliness. The new AQUOS LED TV (model LC-90LE745U) is a 90" beast of a screen, that stands nearly 4' tall and spans 6' 8" wide. The panel is 1080p (shame it's not 4K!), and it weighs a whopping 141 pounds....

Gorilla Glass is great, sure, but it's not flawless, and it's still possible to damage and crack. But what if electronics could repair themselves? It sounds like a pipe dream, and indeed it is, but it may not be as far-fetched as you think. Toray Advanced Film Co. will reportedly begin to sell a self-curing coat film, which is said to be able to "self-repair small scratches in earnest." So far, the company has supplied the film to a number of smaller applications, and evidently things have turned out so well that commercial production is in the pipeline. It seems that touch panels are first in... Read more...
A TechCruncher recently got a sneak peak at a new Kindle under development in Amazon’s labs, and although most of the device was apparently hidden under cardboard, the premier feature was exposed: a glowing screen. In late 2010, it seems, Amazon snapped up lighting technology company Oy Modilis and its many patents (and talent) and is working on integrating lighting to the Kindle’s screen. The lighting element will be inserted as a layer in the screen and use energy-efficient LEDs; the whole effect promises to be easier on the eyes than LCD screens used on tablets. New Kindle design...

If you aren't playing the streaming game, you just aren't getting with the program. That's the message being handed down these days, and HP's making sure they aren't missing any bandwagon action. The new Wireless TV Connect was revealed today, enabling laptops to beam content to displays with "no delays and no hassles." In the box, you'll get a PC adapter, TV adapter, USB cable, HDMI cable, power adapter and warranty card. That'll allow you to stream HD 1080p content straight from the computer with no lip sync issues -- it'll even handle Blu-ray footage and 3D content. HP claims that the entire... Read more...
It's got to be hard being a company like Lenovo. Pumping out notebooks, laptops, desktops, and even monitors. Lots to keep track of, and lots of people to impress. Sounds like a modern-day celebrity, but in fact it's a technology company. In a bid to toss a bone in the direction of Lenovo's lucrative business partners, the company has just revealed a new monitor series that's tuned for small biz. It's the "LS" series, and it's designed to complement the company's ThinkCentre Edge desktop line. The 21.5-inch LS2221 wide and 23.6-inch LS2421p wide monitors are the ones being revealed, and not coincidentally,... Read more...
There's no question that pixel density is one of the hot new things. Ever since Apple introduced the Retina Display on the iPhone 4, companies have been pushing the pixel envelope, so to speak. In general, the more pixels you fit onto a space, the higher the pixel density. Too high, and fonts are hard to read, but images and multi-media appear exceptionally crisp. Too low, and things just appear "pixelated." LG Display is one company that's working hard to take their displays to a new level in terms of pixel density. This coming week, the outfit will showcase a full line-up of Advanced High Performance... Read more...
World records are fun, aren't they? Particularly when you're talking about the world record for something as awe-inspiring as the planet's largest high-definition video board. Those that have watched a Cowboys game recently know just how giant the HD video display is that hangs within the confines of the new Cowboys Stadium, but it'll be NASCAR fans gawking at the largest. Dale Earnhardt Jr. took the world’s largest high definition video board for a spin this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway, by taking virtual laps around the 1.5-mile track using an iRacing simulator. Marcus Smith, president... Read more...
Over the years, we've seen some pretty unusual notebook designs. There have been large ones, small ones and ones with tilting/swiveling screens. A few have even shipped with two LCDs, and Lenovo even created one with a slide-out LCD. But by and large, the general notebook design has remained constant over the years. Is it time for a major overhaul? Possibly, and Samsung Electronics may be the company leading the charge. At FPD China 2011, Samsung introduced and showcased a 14" see-though LCD panel. That's right: it's an LCD panel that you can see through. It's obviously a prototype for now; Samsung's... Read more...
