Display-maker AU Optronics is now showcasing a 5-inch Full HD (1080p) AMOLED panel, which is a similar screen technology with the same size and resolution as that being employed […]
*+-Apple has created instant marketing and PR buzz when it debuted its iPhone 4 smartphone with the Retina Display in which late CEO Steve Jobs says that the naked eye cannot discern individual pixels with a 326 pixel-per-inch resolution. Since then, Android smartphone manufacturers have tried to match and out-class the Retina Display resolution beginning […]

*+-Everyone’s a twitter over the sweet Apple Tablet tweets from Jason Calcanis. Our focus, rightfully, has been on the battery life claim (need more usage data here).
