On Gear Live: The Technics 1200 Turntable Returns

galaxy nexus vs iphone 4s

This picture of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus next to the iPhone 4S says so much to us. Seriously, what is up with that display size on the Galaxy Nexus? I mean, I'll be the first to admit that I'd like to see the iPhone screen size get bumped up from the 3.5-inches that it's been at since the original iPhone hit the scene, but the Galaxy Nexus display is a whopping 4.65-inches. Sure, some people would love a display that size, but for the flagship Nexus device that launches Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it just feels impractical. The screen is so big that one-handed use of the phone get frustrating, and I'm someone with large hands!

What do you think? Are you good with a 4.65-inch smartphone, or is that a bit much for your tastes?

iPhone 5

Apple is still working out the kinks with its new iPhone 4S, but that's not stopping the rumor mill from generating speculation about the next smartphone due out at a time and place unknown from the Cupertino tech giant, probably known as the iPhone 5.

The next iOS handset will likely have a 4-inch display, according to Macotaraka.

Hitachi and Sony have "started to ship 4-inch LCD [displays] for [a] new iOS device," the blog reported Sunday, citing an anonymous source. And that's not all—the two companies are also shipping LCD screens for the iPad 3, according to Macotakara. Rumor has it that the next-generation tablet will be the first iPad to use Apple's high pixel-density Retina Display technology.

iPad 3 display

We're entering that special time of year. No, not the season when people begin to wrap presents and trim their trees, but those months leading up to the period when it's assumed that Apple will launch its next-gen tablet that iPad rumors abound.

The latest report comes from Digitimes, which has claimed makers of iPad displays including Samsung, LG, and Sharp shipped one million high-res panels for the iPad 3 in October. It also said these suppliers will increase shipments to two million units in November.

Apple will begin assembling the third iPad in January of 2012, Digitimes also said.

It alleged that Apple is developing a new 7.85-inch panel, and suppliers AU Optronics (AUO) and LG have already sent samples to Apple. However, Digitimes said it couldn't determine whether or not Apple would add an iPad of this size to its line next year.

Corning lotus glassThe company behind super-strong Gorilla Glass is stepping up display technology again. Corning on Tuesday announced Lotus Glass, a new material to be used in LCD and OLED screens.

Corning said in a press release that Lotus Glass offers a high-resolution display without slurping up too much power.

“Corning Lotus Glass has a high annealing point that delivers the thermal and dimensional stability our customers require to produce high-performance displays,” Andrew Filson, global commercial director of Display Technologies and vice president of Corning, said in a statement. “Because of its intrinsic stability, it can withstand the thermal cycles of customer processing better than conventional LCD glass substrates. This enables tighter design rules in advanced backplanes for higher resolution and faster response time.”

Ars Technica explained that “LCD glass substrates can require intense heating and cooling cycles to create screens, particularly for higher-resolution displays.” However, Lotus Glass’ higher “annealing point” means the material must be placed under much higher temperatures in order to “relax internal stresses and forces,” the site said.
