Whatever You Want – 300 DPI

In our recent “Future Wants” column regarding a future eBook reader that will eventually replace ink and paper, one of the minimum requirements was a screen with a resolution of 300 dots per inch.

Samsung Electronics just announced the December 2004 availability of a LCD screen with just that resolution. At 2.6-inches it will end up in mobile phones, but Samsung also plans to use the technology in future smartphones and portable television-capable devices. Eventually, in probably less than 12-months, they should have a larger display available which might eventually find its way into a new generation of eBooks readers.
