Samsung touts twin-view mobile display

One panel, two pictures

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Samsung has developed an LCD capable of displaying two separate images independently. The South Korean giant reckons there's a market for PDAs and PMPs - the display's for mobile machines - that can show two images back to back.

According to the company, the two sub-panels are 2.22in jobs, each with a 240 x 320 resolution, a portrait orientation and the ability to show 262,144-colours. One has a backlight, the other relies on incident illumination passing through the screen and being reflected back out toward the viewer. That makes it less bright than the other: 100cdpm² to 250cdpm².

Samsung said the screen will allow device makers to replace two panels with one, though how many consumer-oriented gadgets require a full-size secondary screen isn't clear, though the technology would allow even thinner clamshell phones to be made. ®
