Samsung is unveiling a 2560x1600 10.1-inch display next week paving the way for a Retina Display iPad.

At the SID Display Week 2011 International Symposium (LA Convention Center, Booth 707) May 17-19, Samsung Electronics is demonstrating the industry’s first 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) format PenTile™ RGBW tablet display, an ultra-high resolution, liquid crystal display (LCD). The prototype demonstration marks the first time this resolution has been available for the tablet market in the popular – 10.1-inch – format, rivaling the highest resolution smartphone displays now on the market. Samsung expects to have commercial availability of this technology for tablet applications later this year.

PenTile RGBW WQXGA Technology Highlights
● This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of luminance, yet uses 40 percent less power than that used by legacy RGB stripe LCDs in power-saving modes.
● An outdoor brightness mode of as much as 600 cd/m2 luminance enables viewing in bright ambient lighting.
● The display’s color gamut is 72 percent., allowing greater color realism than legacy RGB stripe tablet displays that have a typical color gamut of 55 percent NTSC.
● PenTile technology achieves 300 dpi resolution with two-thirds the number of subpixels, maintaining the VESA/ICDM display resolution standard.

The current iPad has a resolution of 1024x768. Apple is expected to double this resolution to 2048x1536. That resolution is still significantly less than the new Samsung display.

I think Apple will have to give up the 10-hours battery life for this....

This is a PenTile display. PenTiles displays look like ass. They use simulated pixels. This screen is an ugly lie.

it achieves 298.8 PPI, and NOT 300. sqrt(2560^2+1600^2)/10.1
