Samsung slips laptops its 16.5-inch whopper

LCDs keep getting bigger and bigger

They say size isn't everything, but Samsung might disagree. The Korean giant has developed a 16.5in TFT LCD for notebook PCs. The screen has Super Extended Graphics Array (SXGA) resolution, which Samsung claims gives 1.9 times the resolution of existing XGA displays. The 16.5in whoppers won't go into volume production until early next year and Samsung hopes to shift around 10,000 units per month. Earlier this week, Apple invested $100 million in Samsung's LCD business. ®
